The articles that are mathematical / graphic “ heavy “ are of particular interest to me. While I appreciate that many authors have statistical and / or graphical…

A condensed version of a paper entitled: “Violating Nyquist: Another Source of Significant Error in the Instrumental Temperature Record”.

By William Ward, 1/01/2019 The 4,900-word paper can be downloaded here: https://wattsupwiththat.com/wp-content/uploads/2019/01/Violating-Nyquist-Instrumental-Record-20190112-1Full.pdf The 169-year long instrumental temperature record is built upon 2 measurements taken daily at each monitoring station, specifically the maximum temperature (Tmax) and the minimum temperature (Tmin). These daily readings are then averaged to calculate the daily mean temperature as Tmean = (Tmax+Tmin)/2. Tmax…
