  • Tree-Rings ‘Overestimate Early-19th Century Summer Cooling By 1.5 °C’

    • Date: 11/04/15
    • U Büntgen et al., Journal of Climate

    Annually resolved and absolutely dated tree-ring chronologies are the most important proxy archives to reconstruct climate variability over centuries to millennia. However, the suitability of tree-ring chronologies to reflect the ‘true’ spectral properties of past changes in temperature and hydroclimate has recently been debated. At issue is the accurate quantification of temperature differences between early-19th […]

    Despite all of the headlines recently about “record low Arctic ice”, sea ice extent has actually been regrowing for the last two weeks, and is nearly back to where it was on 22nd February.      http://arctic-roos.org/observations/satellite-data/sea-ice/observation_images/ssmi_ice_area.png Most of the shortfall against the 1981-2010 average is in the Sea of Okhotsk, which is utterly irrelevant […]
