A note on hemispheric and global temperature changes

A. WIIN NIELSEN

Abstract

The paper discusses a lower to middle tropospheric temperature record obtained from a satellite micro-wave sounder (MSU) using channel 2R. The temperature record, giving monthly mean temperatures for the 18 years from 1979 to 1996, inclusive, and for the two hemispheres and the Globe, are analysed with the purpose of finding long term trends. A comparison is made with temperature records using standard data.
