Discontinuity Issues with Radiosonde and Satellite Temperatures in the Australian Region 1979 – 2006

  title={Discontinuity Issues with Radiosonde and Satellite Temperatures in the Australian Region 1979 – 2006},
  author={John R. Christy and William B. Norris},
The temperature records of 28 Australian radiosonde stations were compared with the bulk-layer temperatures of three satellite products of The University of Alabama in Huntsville (UAH) and Remote Sensing Systems (RSS) for the period 1979–2006. The purpose was to use the satellite data as ‘‘reference truth’’ to quantify the effect of changes in station equipment, software, and operations on the reported upper air temperatures and resulting trends. The products are lower troposphere (LT… CONTINUE READING
