Unformatted text preview: CURRENT ANALYSIS Uses sources from a variety of places Graphs and tables are updated around the 10th of each month. Two step gathering i) Multiple records combine into one ii) Urban and peri-urban stations are adjusted so that long term trend matches the mean. Global temperature index is obtained by comparing meteorological measurements with the sea surface Analyses is limited to the period since 1880 because of poor spatial coverage. Plots of Regional Maps In order to see the effects of peak cooling during the 1940’s we need to choose a particular range around that interval of time and investigate the behavior of the climate system during the particular interval. This is very similar to the principle of trichotomy in mathematical analysis, here we examine the boundaries outside the given equality and obtain relations on either side following which we conclude a particular result based on the how each side behaves. ....
