New paper predicts SST temperature based on Pacific Centennial Oscillation

Here’s figure 18, which I found interesting, especially the red line. – Anthony Guest post by Bob Tisdale Today, blogger “slimething” left me a link to the Karnauskas et al (2012) paper A Pacific Centennial Oscillation Predicted by Coupled GCMs. Thanks, “slimething”. I’m not going to offer any thoughts, because I don’t want to influence…


SST's cooler now than in the Medieval Warming Period

From “The Hockey Schtick“, some inconvenient truth that breaks Mann’s already broken hockey stick into even smaller pieces. A new paper finds significant cooling of Atlantic Ocean over past millennium, making the MWP warmer in terms of sea surface temperature than today. Since land temperatures (including forest lands of Sheep Mountain and Yamal) respond significantly…

Mid-October 2011 SST Anomaly Update

by Bob Tisdale NINO3.4 NINO3.4 Sea Surface Temperature (SST) anomalies (a commonly used El Niño-Southern Oscillation Index) are still hovering within weak La Niña range. For the week centered on October 12, 2011, NINO3.4 SST anomalies are approximately -0.77 deg C. NINO3.4 SST Anomalies – Short-Term
