This post is a placeholder (29 June 2010). The immediate intent is to provide a link to two sites.This post was written on 29 June 2010; corrections and minor additions made on 7 July 2010 are in italics. The objective is to provide some data and links to accompany recent posts by Ari Jokimäki and ArthurSmith.
First, Ari Jokimäki's new analysis of the Tljander proxies, particularly XRD, X-Ray Density. His post at AGW Observer is Tiljander.
Second, here is a link to the Excel file Kort-gridbox-CRUtemv3.xls, which contains monthly and annual CRUtemv3 CRUTEM3v temperature anomaly records for the 5 degree by 5 degree gridbox that includes Lake Korttajarvi. It is downloadable from Bitbucket by clicking on the filename.
