…-omatic Correlations

Update Mar 28: Here is Luboš version replacing my much less pretty monochrome version showing the spatial decorrelation of the “Comiso” version of the data recently archived a couple of days ago by Steig. Figure 1. Spatial Correlation for Sample of “Comiso 2009″ Antarctic Gridcells Jeff Id has compared this to corresponding surface stations at […]

Antarctic Spatial Autocorrelation #1

“Noisy” covariance matrices have been discussed here on many occasions in a variety of contexts, largely because the underlying strategy of Mannian methods is to calculate the covariance of everything to everything else and then calculate verification stats using methods that ignore the data mining that effectively takes place with huge covariance matrices. Steig et […]

Interaction of Infilling on Std Deviation

Standardization in Mannian algorithms is always a bit of an adventure. The bias towards bristlecones and HS-shaped series from the impact of Mann’s short segment standardization on his tree ring PCs has been widely publicized. Smerdon’s demonstration of defects in Rutherford et al 2005, Mann et al 2005 and Mann et al 2007 all relate […]
