Temperature Record Quality Problems
February 13, 2008 by willhelm
|It is not uncommon to find obvious non-climatic trends in� temperature
records that are not related to the growth of the Urban Heat Island (UHI).�
These features can be termed inhomogeneities and unless complete station
diaries have been kept it is often impossible to accurately assign causes.
|�� The administration and hardware needed to collect temperature
records were put in place for purposes of weather reporting and forecasting.���
NOT to define subtle climate changes.� So this whole process of measuring
“climate change” from instrumental records is to some extent trying to make
a silk purse out of a sows ear.�� Computing climate change from�
thousands of temperature records from around the globe is akin to attempting
to make a set of silk travel baggage from a few sacks full of sows ears.
