US National Centers for Environmental Information (NCEI).

Finding Data by Category Online — The demand for high-value environmental data and information has dramatically increased in recent years. To improve their ability to meet that demand, the USA’s former three NOAA data centers The National Climatic Data Center, The National Geophysical Data Center, and The National Oceanographic Data Center, which includes the National Coastal Data Development Center, have merged into the National Centers for Environmental Information (NCEI – www.ncei.noaa.gov/). NCEI is responsible for hosting and providing access to one of the most significant archives on Earth, with comprehensive oceanic, atmospheric, and geophysical data. From the depths of the ocean to the … Continue reading

About Climate Data at Berkeley Earth

Online — Berkeley Earth (http://berkeleyearth.org) was conceived by Richard and Elizabeth Muller in early 2010 when they found merit in some of the concerns of skeptics. They organized organized a group of scientists to reanalyze the Earth’s surface temperature record, and published their initial findings in 2012. Berkeley Earth became an independent non-profit 501(c)(3) in February 2013. From 2010-2012, Berkeley Earth systematically addressed the five major concerns that global warming skeptics had identified, and did so in a systematic and objective manner. The first four were potential biases from (1) data selection, (2) data adjustment, (3) poor station quality, and … Continue reading

IMPROVING HUMIDITY MEASUREMENTS IN METEOROLOGY

A product with a unique advantage Air humidity and temperature play an important role in meteorology. Highly accurate measurements of these climate parameters form the basis of accurate forecasts and meaningful records. The E+E Elektronik Model EE33 series humidity and temperature sensor is the only one on the market with a double-heated probe. Both the sensor tube and the sensor element are heated. An application note, free for download from their website, tells the rest of the story. You can download it be clicking here. If that does not work, as sometimes happens when organizations “refine” their websites, we have … Continue reading

The EarthTemp Network

  Online — EarthTemp is a network to stimulate new international collaboration in measuring and understanding the surface temperatures of Earth. This will involve experts specialising in different types of measurement of surface temperature, who do not usually meet. Their motivation is the need for better understanding of in situ measurements and satellite observations to quantify surface temperature as it changes from day to day, month to month. Knowing about surface temperature variations matters because these affect ecosystems and human life, and the interactions of the surface and the atmosphere. (for more details, see motivations and objectives and scientific context … Continue reading

NASA | Taking Earth’s Temperature

A short video explaining how researchers use computer models to study climate change. For more information visit http://svs.gsfc.nasa.gov/ClimateEssen… NASA has compiled a multimedia resource collection for editors and producers developing climate-related stories. Taking Earths Temperature is one of the many resources included in the gallery. Organized by topic, the videos, data visualizations, conceptual animations, and print-resolution images illustrate key concepts and discoveries in climate science. The compilation also features ten of NASAs most popular climate visualizations. The gallery can be found at NASA’s Scientific Visualization Studio (http://svs.gsfc.nasa.gov/ClimateEssentials ­ and NASA’s Global Climate Change site (http://climate.nasa.gov/ClimateReel). Images and videos can be … Continue reading
