UPDATE: I am adding the following means:
1936 raw / tobs / final mean = 101.47 / 100.83 / 100.32
2012 raw / tobs/ final mean = 99.57 / 99.66 / 99.48
Original Start of post:
I’ve been doing posts about USCHN and Estimated data. I wanted to visualize.
This is the USHCN July 1936 and 2012 TMAX data for Kansas.
Form the most part, in July 1936 the red data (Final) is colder than the raw temperatures (black) and in 2012 it is the other way around.
The data is in F (originally in C so there may be very slight conversion issues).
Black temperatures are raw, blue are TOBS and red are Final adjusted. Stations with just a red have no raw data. The data is just ‘E’stimated.
