OF GENERAL INTEREST: TEMPERATURE TRENDS


Item #d95mar5

"Simulation of Recent Global Temperature Trends," N.E. Graham (Sci. Res. Div., Scripps Inst. Oceanog., La Jolla CA 92093), Science, 267(5198), 666-671, Feb. 3, 1995.

Global average tropospheric temperatures have risen during the past century. The sharp rise since the mid-1970s can be closely reproduced by atmospheric models forced only with observed ocean surface temperatures. Although the observed behavior may be from natural climate variability, there is disquieting similarity among the model results, observed climate trends in recent decades, and the early expressions of the climatic response to increased atmospheric CO2 in numerical simulations.


Item #d95mar6

"Resampling of Network-Induced Variability in Estimates of Terrestrial Air Temperature Change," S.M. Robeson (Dept. Geog., Indiana Univ., Bloomington IN 47405), Clim. Change, 29(2), 213-229, Feb. 1995.

Addresses the problem of uneven and changing spatial distributions of air temperature stations and the changing numbers of stations in relation to estimates of air temperature change derived from historical observation networks. Terrestrial average air temperature anomaly estimates are produced that vary by more than 0.3ĚC, solely due to network changes.
