Question: Searching for collaborators to study the historical transitions in the climatic temperature record

Last modified March 30, 2016 08:28

We are searching for collaborators to study the historical transitions in the climatic temperature record.

Dear colleagues, We are searching for collaborators to study the historical transitions in the climatic temperature record.

We want to study three important inhomogeneities using parallel datasets from all over the world. Currently we have 3 ongoing studies. 1. We are studying the influence of relocations, which likely cause cooling jumps, which counteract the influence of urbanization. <http://variable-variability.blogspot.com/2016/03/cooling-moves-of-urban-stations.html> 2. We are studying the influence of the transition to Stevenson screens; it looks as if we underestimated the warming bias of early temperature observations. <http://variable-variability.blogspot.com/2016/02/early-global-warming-transition-Stevenson-screens.html> 3. We are studying the ongoing introduction of automatic weather stations for temperature and precipitation. <http://variable-variability.blogspot.com/2016/01/transition-automatic-weather-stations-parallel-measurements-ISTI-POST.html> We are both interesting in the jumps in monthly means and in what these transitions do to the distribution of daily data (weather variability and means). The parallel measurements only need to be one year long; we get the statistics from having many locations. Information on the measurement set-up is important, thus every contributor is invited to join our articles.

If you know someone who might be able to help us with these studies, we would be grateful if you could forward this mail.

With best regards,

Victor Venema
