The Oddities in NOAA’s New “Pause-Buster” Sea Surface Temperature Product – An Overview of Past Posts

Guest Post by Bob Tisdale NOAA revised their global surface temperature product in June 2015 to show more global warming during the post-1998 period. Those data manipulations supposedly ended the slowdown in global warming over that period. The changes to NOAA’s global ocean surface temperature product were the primary cause of the NOAA’s hiatus-disappearing act.…

January 2016 ENSO Update – It Appears the El Niño Has Peaked

Guest Post by Bob Tisdale This post provides an update of many of the ENSO-related variables we presented as part of last year’s 2014-15 El Niño Series.  For the series about the 2015/16 El Niño, we’ve used the evolution years of different El Niños as references to the goings-on in 2015.  This month we’re including…
