The above data is charted below: BOM monthly data is available for all WA recording locations with historic averages which can be used to verify the trend calculates from 30 locations compared to 1900 baseline temperatures. The sharp upward trend compared with the 1900 average is reflected in BOM ACORN data below (BOM website source) which shows the overall WA mean temperature jumped by almost 1 degree C beginning in the spring of 2009 between August and November, broken into seasons to give some averaged time perspective.
The BOM explains its baseline for the above anomalies thus: The BOM also compares temperatures with the baseline average of 22.5C from 1961 to 1990. The BoM's portrayal of WA's temperature history is not static. The animation below shows the difference between the anomaly charts published in 2010 and 2013, the ACORN dataset of 2012 a probable reason for the early years cooling and temperatures warming since about 1930: The bureau replaced the ACORN 1 temperature dataset of 2012 with a revised ACORN 2 dataset in late 2018, increasing Australia's per decade rate of warming by 23% (see analysis). In Western Australia, this cooled the 1961-90 anomaly baseline mean temperature at all 25 WA network stations from 20.44C in ACORN 1 to 20.15C in ACORN 2. The effect of this 0.29C difference (and further homogenised cooling of temperatures before 1961) can be seen in the animation below: Top of page This website produced by Scribeworks 2008-2023 |
