Do CMIP6 models match the data?

Here is a comparison between my calculation of  global temperature data (spherical triangulation) and a sample of CMIP6 models blended so as to to match SST and land data (see here) The model data are computed as temperature anomalies on … Continue reading

CMIP6 temperature cycles

Nick Stokes has an interesting post comparing a blended version of CMIP6 tos/tas  to compare models to data. The blending is intended to correct for the fact that  Ocean temperatures are measured at the surface (tos) while land temperatures are … Continue reading

Global Temperatures so far (March 2021)

HadSST3 has finally been updated for February and March so I can calculate global temperatures based on spherical triangulation. So far 2021 is running much cooler that 2020. The temperatures for the first 3 months of the year are: Jan … Continue reading
