Arctic Trends using GSOD Temperature data with TempLS


  1. Still noisy, though.

    The jump in the high arctic around 2005 stands out a bit. Might be worth doing an EM Smith test there - make sure the stations that dropped off around that time weren't trending differently than the ones that stayed.

  2. Well, even tho GHCN has few high arctic stations, it and GSOD show the same jump, and I don't see a dropoff in GSOD stations at that time.

    I'm planning to do a regional trend plot - but I need a new set of orthogonal functions for it.

  3. When Arctic loses ice, winter in USA / Europe are colder; because water absorbs more coldness / releases extra heat - that coldness is spread south by the currents: http://globalwarmingdenier.wordpress.com/midi-ice-age-can-be-avoided/
