More Canadian Nonsense

I’m looking at what has caused the spike in temperatures in Canada the last five years.

There are only 85 stations in Canada which were active in both 1950 and 2017, and many of these have intermittent data during that time.

I found another flaky station, which since 2014 is reporting many fewer days, and seems to be losing all of the low temperatures.

It doesn’t take very many stations like this to create a large fake upwards trend.

    Hi Tony. Happy to see you branching out from u.s. analysis again. So it’s more evidence of data tampering. Looking forward to reading what else you can dig up.

    ound the canadian online climate data to be pretty tedious to access in full when working on the canadian federal website. They don’t seem to offer a large file like noaa does. Did you dip into the ghcn to retrieve the canadian station data or did you find a way to obtain the canadian data from a canadian federal website?

    If the former, do you think there is any cause for concern for data transfer from canadian sources to noaa? In other words, if we’re working with ghcn data, then have we exhausted all means to recover the supiciously missing canadian data?

    If the latter, would you mind posting a link to the data?

    Thanks in advance.

      I get everything from GHCN. It is a huge amount of data extracted from thousands of files.

        Yeah, the ghcn is a ton of data. Just wondering if it’s possible to retrieve the missing Canadian data on the Canadian federal site.

        One wonders if the missing data is really missing (raw data deletion) or if it exists and was not sent to noaa.

    Fascinating detective work… in one week you dig up enough initial raw material for 10 PhD dissertations, in case anyone’s looking for ideas

    Great work, Tony! Thanks!

    The earlier (credible) data is from a station near the airport. “Baker Lake A”

    A common denominator in these cases might be the switch to automatic stations. haven’t some of them been found to contain a design defect?
