While looking at information about the NASA GISS methodology of using night time DOD satellite photos to count street lights around weather stations to use as a way of assigning an “urban bias”, I came across this night time satellite photo:
It occurs to me that North Korea may have some of the most “rural” weather stations in any Northern Hemisphere country. In contrast, South Korea looks like it would not be such a good place to measure temperature. Fortunately, the DMZ keeps any errant civilization or industrialization bias from creeping across the border.
I do see one light on in North Korea, I wonder who that belongs to?
