Jennifer Marohasy was quoted in The Australian on inaccuracies in the homogenisation of temperature data by the Bureau of Meteorology:
She said that it is generally stated that without homogenisation, temperature series are unintelligible.
However, she said that this is disputed by research that clearly shows there is a very high degree of synchrony in all the maximum temperature series from Victoria beginning in January 1856 and ending in December 2016.
“The individual temperature series move in unison suggesting they are an accurate recording of climate variability and change”.
“But there is no long-term warming trend. There are however cycles of warming and cooling, with the warmest periods corresponding with times of drought”.
