IPCC Models vs Observations – Land Surface Temperature Anomalies for the Last 30 Years on a Regional Basis

In two posts about a year ago and more recently in my book, we compared the satellite-based sea surface temperature anomalies and CMIP3-based climate model simulations on an ocean-basin basis. Refer to Satellite-Era Sea Surface Temperature Anomalies Versus IPCC Hindcasts/Projections … Continue reading

CMIP3 Models Versus 20th Century Land Surface Temperature Anomalies

I was writing the summary post for my recent series that compare observed Global Surface Temperatures to the IPCC and CMIP3 Climate Model outputs when I realized I had not presented Land Surface Temperature Anomaly comparisons. COMPARISONS This post illustrates … Continue reading
