I finally found an insidious bug and squished it, because it had been squishing my brain for several days.
I pointed out some of the exercises involved in this project in the last post of this series (The Evolution of Models - 16).
I had been doing a thing using global mean sea level (GMSL) as calculated by the Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organisation (CSIRO).
They keep GMSL records going back to 1880.
Add to that the global mean surface temperature (GMST) as calculated by the Goddard Institute for Space Studies (GISS).
They keep GMST records going back to 1880.
Meaning, displaying the GMSL, the GMST, and one local tide gauge station history in a single graph (e.g. Fig. 1) in terms of a pattern relation between each and every one them.
The difficulty is doing it with the high Hansen projection, as well as the low The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) projection, in the same graph.
I did the low IPCC projection part of it (Fig. 1), but I am not yet satisfied with the outcome of the larger scale projection.
It will take a bit longer, but it will eventually work out and be better than just one tide gauge station display by itself (e.g. Fig. 3).
BTW, the Hansen model (Fig. 2) is looking to be the one to watch IMO, because lately the months and years are breaking global heat records one after the other in a big way.
Something has to give.
My bet is that "the give" will be the collapse of ice shelves that are now holding back the ice streams of the ice sheets in Greenland and Antarctica.
