We report an estimate of the Earth’s average land surface temperature for the period 1753 to 2011. To address issues of potential station selection bias, we used a larger sampling of stations than had prior studies. For the period post 1880, our estimate is similar to those previously reported by other groups, although we report smaller uncertainties. The(More)
Six experiments investigated the preattentive segregation of line-like patterns composed of discrete elements in a background of distractors. The results indicate that other factors in addition to spatial density influence line segregation. Edge alignment, edge length and principal axis orientation also affect line segregation. Differences in the outputs of(More)
Digestion of blood within the mosquito midgut is mediated primarily by a series of proteases, and several previous studies have described protease activity within homogenates of the midgut of the malaria vector Anopheles stephensi. We have expanded on these previous data by resolving protease isoforms from the midgut as well as the hemolymph of adult An.(More)
An analysis team led by Anthony Watts has shown that 70% of the USHCN temperature stations are ranked in NOAA classification 4 or 5, indicating a temperature uncertainties greater than 2C or 5C, respectively. This uncertainty is large compared to the analyses of global warming, which estimate the warming of 0.64 ± 0.13 C over the period 1956 to 2005. The(More)
