Climatological time-series of tropospheric temperatures from the Microwave Sounding Unit (MSU) are potentially of great value in validating observations of climate change due to their excellent spatial and temporal coverage. However, the long-term trend signal is small relative to natural seasonal and inter-annual variability and inter-satellite biases, and… CONTINUE READING
