Polar temperature sensitivity to lunar forcing? / John A. Shaffer, Randall S. Cerveny, Robert C. Balling, Jr.

Title: Polar temperature sensitivity to lunar forcing? / John A. Shaffer, Randall S. Cerveny, Robert C. Balling, Jr.
Author(s): Shaffer, John A.
Cerveny, Randall S.
Balling, Robert C.,
Date: 1997.
In: Geophysical Research Letters. (1997.), Vol. 24(1) (1997)
Abstract: Reports empirical study of polar sensitivity to climate forcing by comparing high-quality, 17-year satellite-derived dataset of daily temperatures for 2.5° latitudinal bands to known forcing mechanism, lunar phase cycle. Polar regions show temperature range of greater than 0.55°C over course of synodic month. This is 25 times larger than similarly computed range in aggregated temperatures over synodic month. As yet little theoretical investigation of this subject.
