Guan and Nigam 2008 And 2009

I’ve moved to WordPress.  This post can now be found at Guan and Nigam 2008 And 2009
The following two papers by Guan and Nigam are the most in depth and informative analyses of Sea Surface Temperature (SST) for the 20th Century that I’ve run across to date.

The first in chronological order is Guan and Nigam, 2008: Pacific sea surface temperatures in the twentieth century: An evolution-centric analysis of variability and trend. J. Climate, 21(12), 2790-2809:

And the second is Guan and Nigam, 2009: Analysis of Atlantic SST variability factoring inter-basin links and the secular trend: clarified structure of the Atlantic Multidecadal Oscillation. J. Climate, 22(15), 4228-4240

I am presenting them without further introduction. I am still studying both papers, and I will not be able to answer many of your questions. But I am interested in your impressions on what you believe to be the major points of the papers, so I won’t attempt to influence your conclusions by stating mine.

Hi Bob. Thanks for posting these papers. I have only skimmed so far but I can see why these papers have piqued your interest as they seemed to have captured the influence which Pacific variability has on the Atlantic.

Hi Layman Lurker: That's one of the points. There are a few others with the 2008 paper.

The Smith and Reynolds SST Posts DOES NOT LIST ALL SST POSTS. I stopped using ERSST.v2 data for SST when NOAA deleted it from NOMADS early in 2009.
