  1. I lurk Hope all is well!
  2. I don't understand this personal vendetta against climate scientists. It is incredibly upsetting and certainly does not make others want to post here. My colleagues and superiors are genuinely trying to understand the Earth system. They follow and support the scientific method and are constantly trying to find (and answer) new questions about the climate system. We spend most of our time focusing on the contributions between natural and forced climate change. There is no agenda. Climate science engages interdisciplinary work of many scientific, economic, and sociological fields. We want to better understand and communicate Earth's climate in the past, present, and future.
  3. I am back home in Linglestown for winter break -- happy to see some snow! Approximately 1.0" here along Blue Mountain with all surfaces covered (32°F as of 8:30a)
  4. ah, well thank you!
  5. Come on. This thread is about Arctic warmth... not another ridiculous debate about "faking data." It is getting impossible to post in this forum. Here is a look at surface air temperature anomalies over the Arctic Ocean so far this month...
  6. There are numerous studies (older and more recent) that detail the Arctic warming in the early 20th century: i.e., Delworth and Knutson, [2000], Bengtsson et al. [2004], Serreze and Francis, [2006] There is also a fairly nice and concise overview from Skeptical Science. Changes in sea ice are driven by far more than surface temperature. For example, a significant portion of 2016's melt season was forced by bottom melt and increased SST/oceanic heat.
  7. This is just not true. Most of us studying sea ice - atmospheric interactions spend the majority of our time trying to understand and quantify natural climate variability in the context of a long-term record. There is a plethora of peer-reviewed work to showcase the current/recent sea ice anomalies are particularly unusual.
  8. This.
  9. I think this speaks for itself... (from Twitter)
  10. Definitely agree. I think it will be particularly interesting to see the PIOMAS volume/thickness numbers for October. Although now we can get a glimpse at the CryoSat-2 season: http://www.cpom.ucl.ac.uk/csopr/seaice.html
  11. They ended up with 2.19" after the second round of thunderstorms.
  12. Family in Linglestown reporting 1.33" of rain from the recent cell!
  13. Large range of snow totals across Dauphin County with report of 8.8" in Grantville, PA!
  14. My parents reporting roughly 5" of snow in Linglestown this morning (reports of 7-9" a few miles down the road in West Hanover Township, Dauphin County). That pushes them to 43.1" of snow this winter, quite impressive!
