Global Temperatures – April 2021

My calculation of April’s temperature (anomaly) was 0.64C, which is down 0.04C from March. This is based on V4C and HADSST3 data using spherical triangulation. It is the coldest April since 2015. It was particularly cool across Europe, Central/Western US … Continue reading

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
