  • Trying to locate my gridpoint, I determined that I'm all over the map - sort of "Deadhead With Sliderule."

  • Essentially, the calibration period finds a correlation between temperature by gridpoint? by overall? and a given proxy, no?

  • For the reconstruction of Mann & Jones 2003, the average decadal correlation between the eight proxies used and the closest available instrumental annual mean surface temperature gridpoint record during the twentieth century is r = 0.47.

  • For the purposes of a meaningful comparison, the NH spatial means have in this case been diagnosed in both the raw data and reconstructions from the sparse gridpoint coverage of the verification period from 1854-1901, and the dense coverage of the calibration period from 1902-1980.

  • Increasing amounts of noise have been added to the gridpoint temperatures to mimic the presence of other than temperature signals in the proxies.

  • MM03 also appear to have estimated gridpoint standard deviations from the un-detrended surface temperature data, while MBH98 had normalized their EOFs by detrended gridpoint standard deviations.

  • Recently, Mann et al. stated that they used “de-trended gridpoint standard deviations” to normalize temperature data.

  • MM also appear to inconsistently use standard deviations of un-detrended data, while MBH98 had normalized their EOFs by detrended gridpoint standard deviations.

  • Standard deviations were calculated from the linearly detrended gridpoint series, to avoid leverage by non-stationary 20th century trends.
