GISS Temp for March 2012 - comparison

TempLS showed a rise in global mean anomaly in March, 2012, from 0.19 °C to 0.293 °C. GISS showed a somewhat smaller rise, from 0.4 °C to 0.46 °C. The satellite indices showed rises larger than TempLS. Time series graphs are shown here

As usual, I compared the previously posted TempLS distribution to the GISS plot. Here is GISS:



And here is the previous TempLS spherical harmonics plot:

There is a disagreement over the Phillipines, where I get a cold spot and GISS doesn't. Otherwise they match well.

  1. Typo alert - going by your earlier post 0.193 °C should read 0.29 °C.

  2. To beat on one of Eli's hobby horses, what the world REALLY needs is a figure of merit for determining how such anomaly maps match. Of course, this is one of those let's you and him fight comments.
