Mann Misrepresents NOAA OIG

In today’s post, I’ll consider a fifth investigation – by the NOAA Office of the Inspector General OIG here- and show that, like the other four considered so far, Mann’s claims that it “investigated” and “exonerated” Mann himself were untrue. In addition, I’ll show that Mann’s pleadings misrepresented the findings of this investigation both through […]

More NOAA Disinformation and an Appeal to the UK ICO

On March 9, 2011, NOAA scientist Eugene Wahl claimed that the “emails [he] deleted” were “all” “in the public domain” since the Climategate dossier was released. This is more disinformation from NOAA. “All” of the emails are not in the public domain. Attachments to the deleted emails – including Wahl’s changes to AR4 that are […]

Wahl Transcript Excerpt

From Capitol Hill come excerpted notes from the interview transcript between the NOAA Inspector General and Eugene Wahl. I am advised that it’s not a continuous chain, with some back and forth between the paragraphs excluded. I am advised that the excluded sections, often lengthy, do not place the excerpts in any different light than […]

Solomon’s “Divergence” Problem

Although NOAA were minor players in the Climategate letters, the recent report from the Inspector General of the US Department of Commerce (re NOAA) is the first report to date in which the investigators made any effort to crosscheck evidence from Climategate correspondents against independent sources. It does not list the emails that it investigated […]

New Light on “Delete Any Emails”

New light today on Phil Jones’ notorious request that Mann, Briffa, Wahl and Ammann “delete any emails”.

NOAA versus NASA: US Data

Anthony has a post reporting NOAA’s 2008 results, with NOAA reporting: For 2008, the average temperature of 53.0 degrees F was 0.2 degree above the 20th Century average. Anthony showed the following image from NOAA: Readers need to keep in mind that there is a substantial “divergence” between NOAA US and NASA US temperatures as […]

NOAA and the Three Monkeys

In a website release earlier this year, NOAA proudly announced the extensive involvement of its officers in IPCC as lead authors, review authors and even the co-chair of IPCC WG1, Susan Solomon, a senior scientist of the NOAA Earth System Research Laboratory in Boulder, Colo., is co-chair of Working Group 1 (WG1), the Physical Science […]

FOI Request to NOAA

IPCC has just written me saying that they will send me review comments on chapter 6 subject to the following restriction: As this additional form of distribution is being provided in conjunction with the review process, the compiled comments are not for re-distribution to others. Given that the review comments are supposedly in an “open […]

NOAA Gridded Data

We’ve discussed CRU and GISS gridded data, but many of the recent news stories about the “warmest winter” come from NOAA gridded data (for example here and here) , which seems to be gaining a little market share of news attention for gridded data. I’ve started taking a look at the data. Given the intransigence […]

Some Gridcell and Station Utilities

I’ve posted up a collection of functions to read from various gridcell and station archives into organized time series objects here. Read functions are included for HadCRUT3, HAdCRUT2, GISS gridded, GHCN v2, GISS station, GSN, meteo.ru, unaami and G02141. I’ll probably add to this from time to time now that I’ve figured out an organization […]
