Cotton asked about the fabled GHG hotspot over the tropics. Above is old code of mine. Could do this with any dataset in the database.
[I apologise for the error]
A fixed hotspot might vanish in a change plot, the above. OHOH all that horrid AGW gas since 1979 must have done something, mustn’t it?
Equal area is the correct map. There is no around the corner it is the whole surface in one with an accurate area representation of all parts.
A spot of fun is in the Pot Lid PDF which opines the GCM fail to handle mass movement on the supposition/assumption it “doesn’t matter”, are 2.5D not 3D, although that is really 3.5D and 4D because time is a dimension. I could add more from a completely different background.
I hope Dean will allow me this extract
I might post up Hovmuller plots which gives a different view. They are rather large. Alternatively RSS now have Hovmuller plots which are professionally done whereas I am struggling with very little resource.
