It reads a plain ASCII file which contains a list of WOD zones.
It then reads data from SQL tables where measurements in those zones are stored.
It then makes a CSV file of mean averages for each depth and for each year contained in the SQL table.
As it turns out, it is helpful in the exercise of debunking some of the Oil-Qaeda funded, or otherwise encouraged, anti-AGW propaganda they have gleefully created (Humble Oil-Qaeda).
To test the new module, in the file with the zones I listed the WOD zones outlined in red lines and shown on Fig. 2.
I did those two areas to show the contrasts between and among temperatures at ocean depths in different WOD zones.
The graph at Fig. 1 shows the mean average temperatures in those WOD zones spanning all the way from the Prudhoe Bay, Alaska area, way down to the San Diego, California area.
The graph at Fig. 3 shows the mean average temperatures in utterly different WOD zones, spanning from the coast of West Africa across the Atlantic to the Caribbean Sea, just off the east coast of Florida.
Remember, that a scientific paper suggested that it is a waste of time to actually do the scientific work of carefully measuring the characteristics of water at the many depths scientists now meticulously record that data.
We owe our gratitude to scientists who are working hard at it all around the world.
Here is what was suggested to them:
With recently improved instrumental accuracy, the change in the heat content of the oceans and the corresponding contribution to the change of the sea level can be determined from in situ measurements of temperature variation with depth. Nevertheless, it would be favourable if the same changes could be evaluated from just the sea surface temperatures because the past record could then be reconstructed and future scenarios explored. Using a single column model we show that the average change in the heat content of the oceans and the corresponding contribution to a global change in the sea level can be evaluated from the past sea surface temperatures.(Ocean Science, 6, 179–184, 2010, emphasis added). Yep, why do all that measuring work when you can simply make up the numbers with "Latin Math."
"Latin Math" like the priests ("Latin Mass") in some religions used to use religiously, so that the trustful laity would not know what was going on.
And don't forget the res ipsa loquitur speaking lawyers who also still practice that nomenclature (Good Nomenclature: A Matter of Life and Death).
Yep, they simply make it up and pass it on to the warming science commentariat, who will in turn pass it on to the public they claim to serve with truthful observations.
