Lunar Tides and the Long-Term Variation of the Peak Latitude Anomaly of the Summer Sub-Tropical High Pressure Ridge over Eastern Australia
Ian R.G. Wilson; The Open Atmospheric Science Journal, 2012, 6, 49-60; Queensland Department of Education and Training, Toowoomba, QLD, Australia
I notice a number of the data features cited in the paper look like modulation products. At some point I might do a little investigation of the data using my own tools, for now there is little to say.
h/t Paul Vaughan, who has considerable interest in lunar effect where I have worked with him on some analysis. I am very aware of the lunar modulation in some signal sets, tending to act as a signature. Uncovering this in terrestrial data with the presence of severe noise is difficult.
Paul has also indicated current blog discussions: –

[update] Paul thinks the Li paper referenced by Ian Wilson is particularly important. It might also give a context to do with mechanisms.
