The Three Faces of the GISS Land-Ocean Temperature Index (LOTI)

Guest Post by Bob Tisdale This is the first of a series of posts about the impacts of NOAA’s new pause-buster sea surface temperature data on the global temperature products from GISS and NCEI (formerly NCDC). In this post, we’re going to compare the three recent versions of the GISS Land-Ocean Temperature Index from 1979…

Oceans slowed global temperature rise, scientists report

Heat trapped below the surface will begin moving up kicking off a warming cycle (Note: this is the press release that hit Eurekalert today for Nieves et al., which we covered last week – Anthony) From the University of California – Los Angeles A new study of ocean temperature measurements shows that in recent years,…

Claim: low solar activity will melt Greenland's ice faster

From the AGU: Sun’s activity controls Greenland temperatures WASHINGTON, D.C. – The sun’s activity could be affecting a key ocean circulation mechanism that plays an important role in regulating Greenland’s climate, according to a new study. The phenomenon could be partially responsible for cool temperatures the island experienced in the late 20th century and potentially…
