  • The Size of Icy Reflections Sat, 2 Apr 16, 6:07pm
    Guest Post by Willis Eschenbach In my continuing wanderings through the regions cryospherical, I find more side roads than main highways. In my last two posts here and here, I discussed the curious inverse relationship...
  • What’s Hot, What’s Not Wed, 20 Jan 16, 11:37am
    Guest Post by Willis Eschenbach I got to thinking about the idea of a temperature field. By that I mean nothing more than an estimation of theoretical temperatures given some variables like say latitude and elevation. We...
  • Weather Two Months From Now Fri, 18 Dec 15, 1:35pm
    Guest Post by Willis Eschenbach A while back, folks noticed that a couple of months after the El Nino kicked in across the Pacific, the earth would warm up a bit...
  • Tropical Evaporative Cooling Thu, 12 Nov 15, 6:20am
    Guest Post by Willis Eschenbach I’ve been looking again into the satellite rainfall measurements from the Tropical Rainfall Measurement Mission (TRMM)...
  • Guest Post by Willis Eschenbach Following up on a suggestion made to me by one of my long-time scientific heroes, Dr. Fred Singer, I’ve been looking at the rainfall dataset from the Tropical Rainfall Measuring Mission (TRMM)...
  • Climate Insensitivity Sun, 24 May 15, 9:21am
    Guest Post by Willis Eschenbach I’ve been wanting to [take] another look at the relationship between net top-of-atmosphere (TOA) radiation changes on the one hand and changes in temperature on the other...
  • Temperature and TOA Forcing Sat, 9 May 15, 4:36pm
    Guest Post by Willis Eschenbach I’ve been thinking about temperature and top-of-atmosphere (TOA) forcing. TOA forcing is the imbalance between the TOA upwelling and downwelling radiation. The CERES satellite dataset contains...
  • The Desert Finder Sat, 28 Mar 15, 7:11pm
    Guest Post by Willis Eschenbach Despite doing lots of research and investigations over the last few weeks, I’ve written little. Well, actually, I’ve published little, although I’ve written a lot. But I didn’t publish...
  • Guest Post by Willis Eschenbach The CERES dataset is satellite data that is based on radiation measurements made from low earth orbit. The CERES data has two parts. The first part is observational data, measurements of downwelling...
  • Arctic Albedo Variations Thu, 18 Dec 14, 6:28pm
    Guest Post by Willis Eschenbach Anthony has just posted the results from a “Press Session” at the AGU conference. In it the authors make two claims of interest. The first is that there has been a five percent decrease...
  • Argo And Ocean Heat Content Fri, 5 Dec 14, 1:51pm
    Guest Post by Willis Eschenbach Today I ran across an interesting presentation from 2013 regarding the Argo floats. These are a large number of independent floats spread all across the world oceans. They spend most of their...
  • Changes in Total Solar Irradiance Sun, 26 Oct 14, 12:43pm
    Total solar irradiance, also called “TSI”,  is the total amount of energy coming from the sun at all frequencies. It is measured in watts per square metre (W/m2). Lots of folks claim that the small ~ 11-year...
  • Changing weather patterns are starting to strike at the heart of American food production, according to a new report which reveals the impact of climate change on corn production...
  • Marginal Parasitic Loss Rates Thu, 27 Mar 14, 5:02am
    Guest Post by Willis Eschenbach There is a more global restatement of Murphy’s Law which says “Nature always sides with the hidden flaw”...
  • Water Vapor Feedback Mon, 24 Mar 14, 6:12pm
    Guest Post by Willis Eschenbach Well, another productive ramble through the CERES dataset, which never ceases to surprise me. This time my eye was caught by a press release about a new (paywalled) study by Gordon et al. regarding...
