New USGS study shows heat retaining concrete and asphalt have encroached upon US Climate Stations
Anthony Watts one week ago at WUWT
: "In this study, they have observed over 32% of the USHCN stations exhibited an increase in impervious surface area of ⩾20% between 2001 and 2011."
Actual article's abstract: "Over 32% of the USHCN stations exhibited an increase in [impervious surface area] ISA of ⩾20% between 2001 and 2011 for at least 1% of the grid cells within a 100 m radius of the station.
It would be difficult to argue Anthony Watts did not read the abstract carefully enough. He claims he was reviewer of the manuscript.
