Station(s) of the Week
(24th August 2002)

Each week, you will find here the long-term temperature record of a weather monitoring station somewhere in the world. But unlike the city-based stations so favoured by the major climate groups and the IPCC, the ones shown here will be `clean', that is, located in a rural or isolated area free of errors from urban heat islands.
Here is the 20th century history of `Global Mean Temperature' as the greenhouse industry would have us believe, based on an averaging of surface stations, mostly city-based, from around the world. Note the post-1970s warming, a warming not evident in the satellite record of global temperature (as shown on the main page).

See if the `Station of the Week' (below) has a record anything like the one claimed here for the globe as a whole. Both the global average and the `station of the week' originate from the same source, the Goddard Institute for Space Studies 

All stations previously shown here are also available at the Stations Page

This Week - Southern Argentina

Three stations are presented this week, San Antonio Oeste, Trelew, and San Julian. They are shown in red on this map of Argentina.

Trelew Aero (43.2S 65.3W) is in the middle of a region which was settled by Welsh immigrants decades ago. It has a 100-year-old record which has a lockstep match with the record from San Antonio Oeste (40.8S 65.1W) to the north.  This cross-validates their mutual trends.

A shorter record from San Julian (49.35S 67.8W) much further south is added for comparison.

Trelew underwent a small warming of a few tenths of a degree early in the 20th century, and has had a largely neutral trend since the 1940s.  San Antonio Oeste shows the same long-term trend as Trelew.

San Julian in the south has a fragmented record, so the fragments of data from the 1950s may not be directly comparable to the more recent data from 1974.  Since 1974, there has been a 2C inter-annual variability (typical for higher latitudes), but no clear overall trend.

There is clearly no global warming going on in southern Argentina as indicated from these stations, so while we may `cry for Argentina' over her present economic problems, there is no basis for being concerned over her long-term climate.
