Data Page Revision in Progress

I got a request from a reader to put all of the charts from the book up on the webpage.  This is a really good idea and I would like to thank Lawrence for making the request.  I have been spending the past couple of days thinking about the best way to do this and have decided to use the Data page of the website for this purpose.  This will also allow me to link the data sources I used for their generation directly from the charts themselves.  I consider it unlikely that I will be able to get it up all at once, but I will try to get a few chapters up at a time.  I will have the first revision up by Monday, but it might be a work in progress for a while.  I think it will be a nice feature for everyone.

    It is nice to have the sources from the book on line. It makes quoting it so much easier.

    In that regard, do you have any comments on why the N/S hemisphere data is so different?

    If you mark the four important points in the yearly cycle, (i.e. Equinox/Solstis), then the 6.5/5.5 month half cycle times for N/S becomes very apparent from the above graph. Any idea why this is (or what the physics behind this difference is)?

    For clarity what I am comparing is the date of the min/max in each hemisphere and the ‘zero crossing’ points of each as compared to the Equinox/Solstis which are the solar input curve. This gives the temperature ‘lag’ characteristics of the two hemispheres. Presumably the difference is to do with the different land/ocean ratios but I am unaware of where this has been discussed before?
