Nights warm faster

NOAA’s Global Historical Climatology Network (GHCN) publishes 3 different monthly temperature sets for each of the ~7000 weather stations. 1) Average Temperatures 2) Minimum Temperatures 3) Maximum Temperatures. Seasonal variations are averaged out over a 30 year normalisation period to … Continue reading

Tweaking Global Temperature Data

The “kriging” biases described in the previous post can be mostly avoided by using  ‘spherical’ triangulation. This treats the earth as a sphere and triangulates all measurement points onto the earth’s surface.  In this case vertex angles no longer add … Continue reading

Kriging biases in global temperature data

I have made a new calculation of global temperatures using 7300 NOAA/NCDC V3c station data combined with HadSST3 ocean temperature. For the ocean data I use cell locations only where measurements exist for a given month.  I then make a (lat,lon) triangulation … Continue reading
