TAO/TRITON TAKE TWO

Watts Up With That?

Guest Post by Willis Eschenbach

I wrote before of my investigations into the surface air temperature records of the TAO/TRITON buoys in the Pacific Ocean. To refresh your memory, here are the locations of the TAO/TRITON buoys.

Figure 1. Locations of the TAO/TRITON buoys (pink squares). Each buoy is equipped with a sensor array measuring air and sea temperatures and other meteorological variables.

I have hypothesized that there is a thermostatic mechanism involving clouds and thunderstorms that maintains tropical temperature within a certain range. To investigate this mechanism, I decided to look at what happens at a given buoy on days when dawn temperatures are warmer than average, versus what happens at the same buoy on days when dawn temperatures are cooler than average.
