UAH, all layers

Posted: November 10, 2012 by tchannon in atmosphere, Dataset




Correction 10th Nov: I used the gridded data before it had been updated, Oct 2012 is missing. This has no material effect. Currently vortex server at uha is not responding.

All three UAH layers

  • lower statosphere (note different scale, more variable)
  • middle troposphere
  • lower troposphere
  • hades

These are approximations which I assume most readers know, so no more.

RSS is the same but starting somewhat later add upper statosphere.

I’ve done this for completeness.

    Very nice. So middle troposphere seems to show the energy balance quite nicely, falling from 2003 when the Sun’s output dropped below the ocean equilibrium value I determined three years ago.

    If my reckoning is on target, we’ll see the Lower Troposphere following suit pretty soon.

    N.B. No “tropical tropospheric hotspot” to be seen in these plots. The CO2 theory is busted. The Sun controls Earth’s climate change via the ocean’s heat content.

    1983 and 1992 Upper: volcanic?

    Height? Can the warmists consider “lower” to be middle? And if these are global, then these do not show whether the trop tropo has a hot spot or not, as the hot spot is (by definition) a regional observation, not a global one.

    You would need UAH to be subdivided into latitude bands. Not that you’ll find it, but that is how the argument goes. As far as I can think at this moment.

    I work from gridded data Doug using my own code. Grid is 2.5 degree for this data.

    There is a limited capability for extraction of particular cells, something I might enhance.

    The general idea is a common database (sqlite) regardless the published are every flavour of “must be different”, some can’t get left/right or up/down as others. Date line moves too.
    The output processing is common, only grid density varies. Cloning the published global and hemi means is just one feature.

    Sigh, just noticed I used stale data. Update of gridded is often delayed, looked and still didn’t see. Server was down, now has come back up. Was updated sometime on the 9th. Not worth updated the plots, wouldn’t be visible. It’s all updating in the background now.

    Here is some stuff about temperatures at different levels that I published a while ago:

    The Devil, you say!!

    Up next: the harrowing of UEA …

  7. tchannon says:

    It’s nice if someone more able to do dialog adds sense. In this case I’ve added little other than update and filtering which is beyond normal methods.

    No offense, no intent on “covering” your work, I’m about to do a series of posts where hopefully the reasons will be plain. Then I’d better give Rog his blog back.

    We might not be able to see the presence or lack of a hot spot, BUT, we can certainly see almost 20 years with the lower strat doing nothing special instead of cooling. Thanks!!
