XMETMAN CHALLENGES THE MET OFFICE CLAIMS OF A RECORD
Independent assesor Warwick Hughes has found the same disparity with theBOM. Its food for thought. But thanks for all the hard work from our independent auditors
–NOTICE THE SAW TOOTH WAVE FORM AND THE STEP SEQUENCE
-In this graph the inflection point cliff drop were in 1896 and then again at the climate shift at 1976.
The time between the 2 saw tooth drops = 1896 – 1976 = 80 yrs
Note ‘surly’s’ comments
“The oscillation between higher and lower values in nature is often modelled as a smooth harmonic curve.
That does not fit well here.
Not only does the rise from 1897 to 1976 fail to curve down approaching the final peak, the falls from 1892 to 1900 and from 1975 to 1987 are extremely sharp. They are collapses.”
I WILL SLOWLY ADD TO THE COLLECTION IN THE COMMENTS BELOW
Good news.. XMETMAN says
“I though I would display the daily totals as a 365 running total in an effort to try to identify any trends or cycles that may be lurking in the unseen data, and lo and behold there they are!”
Awesome work XMETMAN.. I will use this graphical data for sure. You are a legend!
“Here is a chart of Australian rain anomalies 1900-2013 – it is obvious that the much ballyhooed Millenium Drought was a pussy of a drought Australia wide compared to the obviously dry years from 1910 right up to 1970.”
