Having or projecting anomalous characteristics. Is that a word?
Several of us have been wondering what the point of including Campbell and Macquarie were included in the RegEM reconstruction. Look where they are located.
Now remember RegEM has no idea these stations are half a continent from any land mass at all so it relies on correlation to determine weighting of the trends. It doesn’t make sense to use this data. There are 6 smart guys working on this paper, yet nobody thought…. hmm why would a sane person include those stations? Heck why not throw in a couple from NewYork? Enough ranting but it is nuts.
My guesses are getting better with these guys. I guessed – I bet they have high trends because every other error in this paper is toward increased warming so why wouldn’t this one be the same.
Here they are. Trends are calculated for pre-1982 anomaly becasue that is the portion used in the RegEM reconstruction.
