Today I obtained the paper: LaDochy, S., R. Medina, and W. Patzert. 2007. Recent California climate variability: spatial and temporal patterns in temperature trends. Climate Research, 33, 159-169 You can download the paper in PDF format in its entirety here: ca_climate_variability_ladochy.pdf
I’ll post more on this paper later, but I wanted to make it available for everyone to read beforehand.
This paper references my good friend and colleague, Jim Goodridge, former California State Climatologist in its bibliography. As you may recall, I posted on Jim’s work here a couple of months ago. One of the maps that Jim has prepared, seen below, closely matches the mapped results from the LaDochy et al paper.
