>Combined Solar and Volcanic Aerosol Effect – Part 1

>To attempt to properly investigate the possible solar origin of the late 19th to early 20th century plunge in SST, total solar irradiance (TSI) cannot stand alone. The impact of volcanic aerosols must be included. I attempted to find a … Continue reading

>Solar Signal in East Equatorial Pacific SST?

>In a prior post “Equatorial SST Comparison”, the Eastern Equatorial Pacific (5S to 5N by 80 to 180W) displayed an oscillation that appeared to have an 11-year cycle, a solar signature. Refer to Figure 1, which has been smoothed with … Continue reading

>Multiple North Pacific Decadal and Multidecadal Oscillations

>Figure 1 illustrates the Global and Mid-Latitude North Pacific SST Anomalies from January 1854 to May 2008. The data have been smoothed with a 37-month running-average filter, comparable to a 3-year filter. In Figure 2, the residual of those two … Continue reading
