This collection includes odds and sods of material I refer to or that I've picked up along the way and want to have at my fingertips. For example, there are some handy articles about temperature data adjustments, homogenisation and time of observation bias. And there are articles on the greenhouse effect and some on energy balance.
I haven't sorted these all that well.
