Is Temperature or the Temperature Record Rising

  title={Is Temperature or the Temperature Record Rising},
  author={David R. B. Stockwell},
In this paper, we prove a logical circularity undermines the validity of a commonly used method of homogenizing surface temperature networks. High rates of type I error due to circularity may explain the exaggeration of surface warming found in official temperature networks.

Recent Climate Observations: Disagreement with Projections

The non-linear trend in Rahmstorf et al. [2007] is updated with recent global temperature data. The evidence does not support the basis for their claim that the sensitivity of the climate system has

Homogenization of Temperature Series via Pairwise Comparisons

The pairwise algorithm is shown to be robust and efficient at detecting undocumented step changes under a variety of simulated scenarios with step- and trend-type inhomogeneities and to yield a lower false-alarm rate for undocumented changepoint detection relative to the more common use of a reference series.

Reconstruction of past climate using series with red noise

Artificially generated series with red noise—containing more low frequency than high frequency noise—closely resemble the statistics of natural temperature series, and have been used to evaluate the

Critique of Drought Models in the Australian Drought Exceptional Circumstances Report (DECR)

This paper1 evaluates the reliability of modeling in the Drought Exceptional Circumstances Report (DECR) where global circulation (or climate) simulations were used to forecast future extremes of

Biases in the Australian High Quality Temperature Network

Various reports identify global warming over the last century as around 0.7°C, but warming in Australia at around 0.9°C, suggesting Australia may be warming faster than the rest of the world. This

Toward Elimination of the Warm Bias in Historic Radiosonde Temperature Records—Some New Results from a Comprehensive Intercomparison of Upper-Air Data

Abstract The apparent cooling trend in observed global mean temperature series from radiosonde records relative to Microwave Sounding Unit (MSU) radiances has been a long-standing problem in


Methods are presented for estimating the effect of known site changes on temperature and rainfall measurements. Parallel cumulative sums of seasonally adjusted series from neighbouring stations are a

High-quality spatial climate data-sets for Australia

Recent years have seen much of Australia suffer from severe meteorological drought and a series of climatic extremes (e.g. Bureau of Meteorology 2008a, 2008b). As a result, water resources have

Validating multiple structural change models : A case study

The results of a replication study using the R statistical software package are reported on, able to verify most of Bai and Perron's findings; however, some confidence intervals associated with breakpoints cannot be reproduced.
