WUWT reference pages updated

There’s a bunch of additions and improvements to the Reference Pages (shown on the menu bar below) this week.

Sea Ice Page

– Added a Global Sea Ice Cover map at the bottom

Atmosphere Page 

– Added several new graphics, including Water Vapor and Accumulated Precipitation

– Added links under several of the graphics to animations. These animations are very helpful in visualizing and understanding Earth’s atmospheric system

– Shortened and simplified titles to make everything more readable

– Added a Atmospheric Overview at the very bottom that includes links to helpful background information on various components of Earth’s atmospheric system

ENSO/Sea Level/Sea Surface Temperature Page

– Added several new animations including Global Sea Surface Temperatures 30 day/3 months/1 year, Global Sea Surface Height – 30 days/1 year and Global Sea Surface Salinity – 30 days/12 months

Thanks to WUWT regular “Justthefacts” for his timely work in updating these pages.

  1. Anthony,
    Why is the government not paying you as a scientist?
    Your reference material is fantastic.
    Everything anyone may want to research at your finger tips.
    Love it!!! 🙂

  2. Actually I’ve been meaning to ask so I’m glad you brought up the reference pages.
    At the ENSO page, the BoM monthly temperature change and the BoM 2 week temperature change charts seem totally identical.
    Did we get the link wrong in one of them?
    thnx in advance

  3. Thanks,
    Anthony, Ryan, “Justthefacts”, mods, posters and commenters, those working behind the scenes, for this goldmine of information.

  4. I don’t know “Justthefacts” but he his obviously on the right side of things.
    If hugs were allowed among men……

  5. We really must begin trying harder to adapt to climate change. With the solar cycle moving the planet into a cold period, crop yields may be impacted driving up food prices and causing instability around the globe. We have seen evidence of this with the manifestation of political unrest and revolutionary change across many regions. Climate change is causing inflation in prices unbearable to the people that can least afford id it. The protests and collapse of regimes in Tunisia and Egypt are among the most violent examples. The collapse of economies in Europe, you are probably know the PIIGS story by now, and the rest of the western economies to follow, is not going to be a pleasant experience.
    We must immediately begin to put pressure on our governments to end subsidies for bio-fuels such as corn for ethanol, one of the major drivers of food inflation. The climate is now changing from global warming to global cooling. Unless we begin to take climate change seriously, our future as peaceful caretakers of our planet will no longer continue, and the world my erupt in civil and global clashes of civilization, the likes of which we have never seen.
    This is my essay using the words “Climate Change” in their correct manner. I am not afraid of using those words because of political interests giving those words a bad connotation. I challenge you and WUWT to perhaps host a thread devoted to using those words in proper context, to teach others how to use them properly.

  6. Thanks, Anthony and colleagues and commenters with helpful expertise. Just about anything we want to know or research is on WUWT, a full service blog. Keep up the great work. And now I can clean up a jumble of book marks on the Favorites list. Good research data; good housekeeping. Science like it oughta be.

    Yes, you are correct, the charts were identical. I looked around BoM’s website and couldn’t find a 2 week temperature change chart, but I did find a graphic of Monthly Subsurface Pacific Ocean Equatorial Temperature Anomalies down to 400 Meters and an animation of 5 Day Subsurface Pacific Ocean Equatorial Temperature Means and Anomalies down to 500 Meters. I added both of these to the ENSO page and deleted the erroneous reference to the BoM 2 week temperature change chart.
    Thank you for your help.

  8. Splendid !
    But it would worthwhile to get someone to provide commentary on each of these graphs to explain and interpret them (i.e a summary note for each one.)

    “Might I suggest adding the “butterfly” diagram to the solar page?”
    Yes, added, thank you.

  10. Thank you for the Atmosphere Reference page. A bit mind boggling for a layman’s first look.
    The temperature anomalies for the Arctic troubled me until I told myself these are air temperatures and most of that heat energy will be radiated to space. This is how the planet cools itself during the NH winter. Am I thinking on the right lines?
    Also would the GCR levels be of interest with the current cloud cover graphs?

    Well done mate. I’m glad you included the sub surface T anomalies. I think it is an important indicator of what’s happening in the Pacific.
    Reference pages are sensational, I thank you and Anthony.

  12. Fantastic. Thanks a million.
    It’s great to know the facts when you find yourself in a conversation/debate with a warmist.
    What always infuriate me when reading what warmists write, is suspecting they are exaggerating – with all their good intentions that make them feel they need to treat you as an ignorant who needs to be manipulated into doing what is good for him – and not knowing where to find the facts.
    This site was already great and it is getting better and better!

    This is the latest NOAA/MSFC (2011/02/03) prediction:
    http://solarscience.msfc.nasa.gov/predict.shtml
    Still obviously predicting too much activity for the SC24 peak.

    Nice pick up Gerry, the value continues to tumble on a monthly basis almost. NASA now sitting at 58 which is starting to move some distance underneath even the most pessimistic of the original panel. SC24 has the potential to be lower than SC5, I think it will happen.

  14. Anthony, Just The Facts and others, many thanks for this addition to my daily re-eductaion in science. All the add-ons are brilliant, but take some time and thinking to stay current with. I am rapidly becoming an EBEOB (even better educated old bloke) thanks to WUWT and would have paid a small fortune once for an education resource of similar quality if such a thing had actually existed!

  15. I [second-third-fourth-damn. Must be quicker] the notion. For those who wish to have one of their own, your blog must be considered the King of Blogs and the top notch model for any such endeavor.

  16. I can’t imagine how you find the time and energy to do all this work. I hope you are tremendously rewarded. I appreciate the effort more than I could ever put into this puny comment. Thank you.

    “What do you think of the “Solar Pole Strength” plots?
    http://www.landscheidt.info/?q=node/82
    Good one, I ran it by Leif and he agreed so I added Wilcox’s Polar Field Strength chart, along with Leif’s L&P chart to the WUWT Solar Page under a Magnetic Field section at the bottom:
    http://wattsupwiththat.com/reference-pages/solar-images-and-data-page/
    Here are good summaries of all of the products available from the Wilcox Solar Observatory (WSO), Stanford University;
    http://wso.stanford.edu/
    and Leif’s website;
    http://www.leif.org/research/
    let me know if there is anything else you think should be added to the WUWT Solar Page.

  18. So what happened to that bold wattsup prediction about an Arctic Sea Ice recovery in 2010?
    Ice Volume and Mass has been declining even more than area, but with 2010/Dec and 2011/Jan setting new record lows in area there doesn’t seem to be any chance for an Area or Volume Recovery in 2011.
    How is that “Global Warming Is Not Happening” theory working out for you all?
    Not too well it seems.
    Warmest year on record 2005, with 2010 a close second.
    Tied for 3rd warmest years 1998, 2002, 2003, 2006, 2007 and 2009.

    “So what happened to that bold wattsup prediction about an Arctic Sea Ice recovery in 2010?”
    I don’t remember any WUWT prediction on Arctic Sea Ice, can you provide a link to this supposed occurrence?
    “Ice Volume and Mass has been declining even more than area, but with 2010/Dec and 2011/Jan setting new record lows in area there doesn’t seem to be any chance for an Area or Volume Recovery in 2011.”
    I haven’t seen any accurate measurements of Arctic “Ice Volume and Mass”, just rudimentary models, can you provide links to the data you cite?
    “How is that “Global Warming Is Not Happening” theory working out for you all?”
    Depends which theory your talking about. Global Warming since the Little Ice Age;
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Little_Ice_Age
    certainly. Global Warming since 1979, slight;
    http://www.drroyspencer.com/wp-content/uploads/UAH_LT_1979_thru_Jan_2011.gif
    since 1998, nothing that statistically significant and currently global temps are plummeting due to a La Nina. The Catastrophic Anthropogenic Global Warming Narrative, laughable and thoroughly debunked.
