Satellite Anomaly Video – Know your data pt 3.
Posted by Jeff Id on March 29, 2009
I spent the morning making this video. Click on it to link.
The left side is the raw anomaly from Comiso’s data presented as the original Raw data for Steig O9 the right is the 3 pc data presented as the reconstruction. There are of course some unique differences.
One thing which I noticed from my previous looks at NSIDC AVHRR is that Comiso managed to remove the sea ice contamination from the beach pixels. Not that its a difficult thing for a Jedi. Another is that the mountain range in the lower left aren’t a great boundary for the weather. Temperature trends often cross them, an effect which cannot be shown using only 3 pc’s.
Updated per TCO request.. I’ve added a picture showing the locaton of the mountains and how trends are separated according to Steig 09. The trend’s across the boundary have every possibility to be related to the mathematics used rather than the true temperatures of the area. This isn’t a shot at anyone and may not change any conclusions, it just is what it is.
