  • The O IV 554 can (now?) also be viewed within the TIMED mission: http://lasp.colorado.edu/lisird/data/timed_see_lines_l3a/ It has been increasing from 2003 -2012 (remark in between there was apriori a solar minimum). After 2012 the calibration of TI…
  • a comment to comment 85 and 86 about plate tectonics. Here a link to a video in which a simulation on future tectonics is given: https://twitter.com/galka_max/status/896799828843298817 In this video Eurasia gets pretty squeezed, but the author thin…
  • That cycle is the draconic month, which is 27.2122 days. The tropical month is 27.3216 days, which is the length of time the moon takes to appear at the same longitude. Wikipedia writes: It is customary to specify positions of celestial bod…

  • Chandler discovered the earth's polar wobble in 1891. Scientists knew right away that there was a seasonal wobble that was easily explained by a forced factor. But why couldn't they determine the lunar factor? I don't quite understand why you g…

  • The paper is essentially Curry whining that climate science is too difficult, instead of getting to work and figuring out the physics and math, like the rest of us try to do. Where is she whining ? I mean she is critizising certain features of …

  • As you know I was sofar mostly handcrafting the images in javascript (see above) but that took quite long. So my daughter recommended me to use Julia with Juno and Atom instead. She hadn't found the time to work much with it, but apriori it looked g…
  • I wrote: I mean if this is not a measurement error then what would be your first idea bout possible causes? I now have found the ultraviolett measurements at the extreme ultraviolett variability experiment which is also at UColorado. The plot…
  • This is terrible. I didn't know that he was suffering from depression and I interacted with him here only a bit on the forum, but still this also leaves me quite speechless.

  • I forgot to point out that in the another range (top circle) in here the hydrogen line 486nm can be found.
  • If in fact we are seeing any reduction over a span of a few years, then it would be extremely worrisome for life on the planet over the foreseeable future. reduction of what? The sun is expected to become a red giant, i.e. to rather blow up fir…
  • By the way I calculated the integral of the spectral irradiance between the frequencies 180.5 and 1797.62nm, also as a plausibility check for myself, it is: $$626.7597371000005 W/m^2$$ which sounds plausible since direct sun is about 1050 W/m2. I cu…
  • But is keeping precision to the 15th place in the case of an energy density justified? It's clear from the context ("This is still an approximation but...") that I do not imply such a precision. I kept the decimals in order to make it faster vi…
  • I wrote That is $$0.5∗300∗0.008W/m^2=1.2W/m^2$$ I now downloaded the data from Lisird - actually not the "all" -file for download but "all" from the interactive download, which had a smaller data size, which was although about half the size st…
  • I would also be interesting to hear from you if you are being paid by BAE Systems for your QBO research. I still haven't gotten an answer to this question. Finally BAE Systems Applied Intelligence Operations include e.g. communications and so c…
  • whats so funny about that question?
  • note that within the past year we have had a perigee of the moon with the closest distance to the earth simultaneous with a very full moon since 1948 (i.e. the most super of the supermoons) the supermoon happened more or less after the strange …
  • this is about 0.4%. I find that a lot, Why do I find that a lot? I did a very rough estimation, maybe too rough but may be it should be communicated as well: The "bump" is around 0.003 at 650nm (for this frequency the 2 year slope is actually …
  • I scanned now through the spectrum to see how broad this "recent bump" is and it extends very roughly (each loading for a frequency takes quite long) from 650-950nm, so it looks on a first sight that also a water absorption band would lie in this re…
  • I haven't yet heard from Gunnar Myhre. By the way apologies for mispelling his last name - I just noticed it is "Myhre" like the well-known singer's last name not "Myrrhe" or "Myrhe."
  • What "strange QBO behaviour"? Do you mean the QBO behaviour that has been observed since 1953? No - if you look at the hockey stick (please have look!!) than you see that the irradiances for the 800 nm lines like the 798.83nm soared dramaticall…
  • I wouldn't wonder if the strange QBO behaviour http://www.geo.fu-berlin.de/en/met/ag/strat/produkte/qbo/ may be related to this. I sent an email to Gunnar Myrrhe.
  • The interactive javascript is handy for reading values but unfortunately I can't link to an image, and I dont dare to display a screenshot on my own homepage. Otherwise you would directly see that for 781.31nm the solar irradiance describes a kind …
  • Between work and the underscored effort to try to protect important data assets, I could not find a Sunday Times reference to this, although there was a 2-3 page discussion of Trump's refusal to hear briefings from the IC more than once per week,…
  • "Truth" had always been overshadowed by politics - I just say Galilei.
  • @Jan I googled but couldnt find anything on that. I wondered about your comment because if I understood correctly he was asking about the use of nuclear weapons: Donald Trump, Perhaps Unwittingly, Exposes Paradox of Nuclear Arms
  • Jan wrote in 20: but shortcutting the standard education President-elects get about the nuclear arsenal and U.S. intelligence and armed services capabilities. Mr Trump describes these as "boring" and "not necessary." Really? Do you have a sour…
  • Do people mirror entire ftp sites I never worked with HTTrack, but it doesn't look as if it mirrors ftp contents: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/HTTrack Does it? But even if -a lot of ftp sites are only accessible per (non-public) login. And t…
  • so it makes some sense to back it up as a precaution My whole point above was that I think that this is unfortunately not a "backup" and that some people might be lured into thinking that this is a "backup". It's not.
  • We're happy to help, but it's a big job and it would go faster if it were put on social media. I am not sure wether this "stashing in safe places all climate related data stored on .gov computers." is a good idea. At least it should be made dam…
  • The next step is to understand why the QBO period requires the Draconic lunar month (27.2122 days) and not the Tropical lunar month (27.3215 days). Hint: symmetry Sorry I dont see this. I took the tropical month because thats (if I havent mis…
