“BEST” Researchers’ efforts aim to improve data on surface temperature estimates and their use could bolster public’s understanding of global land temperatures. It’s no surprise that the effort is not without some controversy.
All five of the major temperature indices — NASA’s GISTemp, National Climate Data Center (NCDC), Hadley Centre/UAE (HadCRUT3v), University of Alabama Huntsville (UAH), and Remote Sensing Systems (RSS) — have published their estimates of 2010 global surface or close-to-surface temperatures.
Understanding the carbon cycle is a key part of understanding the broader climate change issue. But a number of misconceptions floating around the blogosphere confuse basic concepts to argue that climate change is irrelevant because of the short residence time [...]
An international group of 80 climate scientists, statisticians, and computer programmers recently gathered in Exeter, England, to discuss how to expand and improve surface temperature data (also see earlier Forum article). The conference, titled “Creating Surface Temperature Datasets to Meet [...]
Critics often complain that the three major surface temperature records — NASA’s GISTemp, the University of East Anglia’s HadCRUT, and NOAA’s National Climate Data Center record — all rely on most of the same underlying station data, provided through the [...]
On June 5th the local newspaper in Beeville, a small town in Southern Texas, published a story about a local 4th grade student who had it said had just won the Junior Division of the National Science Fair for a [...]
In the aftermath of the recent hacked e-mails affair, much opprobrium has been cast in the direction of the Climate Research Unit (CRU) at the University of East Anglia. In part the result of confusion over the meaning of the [...]
