2016 hottest year on record for the troposphere

edited January 2017 in Climate and Weather
I've included some charts in the blog article. As usual, RSS TTT (troposphere) shows more warming that UAH lower troposphere. Both of them broke a new record for the year. RSS had the second hottest December, while for UAH it was only the sixth hottest.

  • Let's not forget that Spencer & Christy's version 6 adjustments subtracted ~0.15° C tropospheric warming since 1999. Nick wrote about it in 2015 Dec:

    Nice to hear they've finally been accepted by a peer-reviewed journal - that of the Korean Atmospheric Association. Presumably they tried first for other journals but were rejected. Hmm...

    This was an enormous cooling adjustment, roughly an order of magnitude larger than the Karl et al/NOAA warming adjustments that had the US Congress in a snit in summer 2015 (& which the Hausfather et al paper just replicated using multiple data analytic methods).

    Let's also not forget that even the RSS TTT data, which were adjusted upward in their version 4, published in 2016 Feb, still UNDERstate warming when compared to the RATPAC radiosonde data, where actual thermometers are placed on actual balloons to measure actual temperatures of actual air.
