Bob Tisdale’s website posts this interesting report.
No resemblance to the warming projected by the IPCC and absolutely independent from the steadily increasing and harmless atmospheric CO2.
For most of the graphs, I’ve added another curve with the data smoothed using a 13-month running-average filter. The exceptions are the weekly NINO3.4 and Global Sea Surface Temperature (SST) anomaly graphs, and the monthly ones for the East Pacific and the Rest-of-the-World (Atlantic-Indian-West Pacific) data. Let me know whether you prefer the graphs with the additional smoothed data or the old version.
IN THE SPOTLIGHT
The sea surface temperature anomalies in all basins dropped this month, which is somewhat novel, but the graph that stood out most for me this month was the one for the South Atlantic. Its low this year is lower than the seasonal lows for most years going back to the unusual 1996/97 dip and rebound. Does this mean the South Atlantic is returning to its former level before that unexplained upward shift over the past few years?
(8) South Atlantic Sea Surface Temperature (SST) Anomalies
(0 to 60S, 70W to 20E)
Monthly Change = -0.042 deg C
