Skepticism About Lower Atmosphere Temperature Data:

Taylor also implied that unlike surface temperature measurements, the UAH satellite data do not "require guesswork corrections ." In reality, the UAH record requires a great number of corrections, because the satellite instruments do not even directly measure atmospheric temperatures. Rather, they measure the intensity of microwave radiation given off by oxygen molecules in the atmosphere, from which the scientists estimate the temperature. The satellites sensors face down toward the Earth and radiation therefore reaches the satellites having travelled upwards through a warming lower atmosphere and cooling upper atmosphere . This influences any warming signal received by the satellites, and because the lower atmosphere is what is being measured. creates a cooling bias that has to be accounted for. But it doesn't end there; bias also exists between the various instrument se...
