Alkenone Divergence

While there are disappointingly few high-resolution alkenone ocean cores with 20th century resolution, there are a few. Given the importance of this class of proxy in Marcott et al, one would have thought the performance of high-resolution alkenones in the 20th century would have been of interest to Marcott et al, but they were silent […]

More Z-Score Opportunism

We’ve frequently observed that the reduction of data to standard deviation units (z-scores) is often associated with seemingly opportunistic orientation of the data sets. Often this is buried in the multivariate methodology. Principal components and RegEM can both function to opportunistically provide orientations to “proxies”. In Mann 2008, we saw pretty examples of proxies being […]

ABC: Global warming puts fish stocks at risk

While trawling for high-resolution ocean sediment cores, I noticed an interesting core offshore Morocco, reported by McGregor et al (Science 2007) earlier this year. This study was released just prior to IPCC complete with press release. Can’t we all think back to a quieter time when a scientist having labored to produce a detailed analysis […]
