The Pause: Further Update December 2015, including Northern Hemisphere

Complete UAH v6.0 data for December for all regions were released yesterday- sooner than I expected! Here are graphs for the remaining regions showing the furthest back one can go to show a zero or negative trend (less than +0.01C/ 100 years) in lower tropospheric temperatures. (See my previous post for Global, Southern Hemisphere, and Tropical regions). Note: The satellite record commences in December 1978. The entire satellite record is now 37 years 1 month long- 445 months.

Tropical Oceans:

One month shorter.

North Polar:

dec NP
The Pause has lengthened again, by 10 months.

South Polar:

dec SP
For the whole of the satellite record, the South Polar region has had a negative trend. So much for a fingerprint of warming due to the enhanced greenhouse effect being greater warming at the Poles!

Australia:

dec Aus
No change.

USA 49 states:

dec USA
No change.

Northern Hemisphere:
Now, about the disappearance of the Pause in the Northern Hemisphere- here’s a curious thing. While there is no Pause overall, Northern Hemisphere Land data do show a Pause, albeit short:

dec NH Land
Only 6 years 6 months- but still a pause. Northern Hemisphere Ocean data show a much more impressive Pause:

dec NH Ocean

18 years and 11months. So the Pause hasn’t disappeared- it’s just hiding in the ocean!
In my next post, later today or tomorrow, I’ll compare Land and Ocean data for various other regions.

    Ken does this mean that the short pause in the NH land data is overwhelmed by the earlier 12+ years of land data? Plus the ocean data pause of 18 +years as well?
