woah. ENSO is not always measured at sea as a temperature, but can be measured as an atmospheric pressure, referred to as the SOI. The QBO wind can get to 60 MPH, and that's essentially what the radiosonde is picking up. Cool if the lunar gravitational force is battering the radiosonde around to that degree, but I really doubt it.

Yes, one would think that. So why even try? :-/
