Warming and Cooling – Tokyo and Frostburg

I was working with the BEST data and decided to look at which stations cooled the most and warmed the most since 1900. It turns out, of the 1957 stations that have data in 1900 and 2011, 1320 have a warming trend and 636 have a cooling trend.

Don’t get me wrong,  I’m not saying the BEST data is right. There is a lot of data discarding going before it gets to the Quality Controlled set, and I haven’t analyzed yet.

Tokyo makes the warming top 10. It is warming at the rate of .31C per decade since 1900.

Phoenix also makes the top 10. .37C per decade.

Frostburg is the station cooling the most, -.21C per decade.
