Abstract:

An autocorrelation analysis of six temperature records from the North Pacific and North Atlantic up to 40 years in length showed the existence of an oscillatory function with period 1 year for all the stations studied, and of another oscillatory function with period 0.5 year for most of the stations. A regression model containing annual and semiannual oscillatory terms was found to provide a good statistical fit to the observed daily temperatures. No long-term trends were detected in the sequences of annual mean temperatures, but there were significant differences among these temperatures. Author
