The Climate Change Emails

The Climatic Research Unit email controversy (also known as “Climategate”)  began in November 2009 with the hacking of a server at the Climatic Research Unit (CRU) at the University of East Anglia (UEA) by an external attacker. Several weeks before the Copenhagen Summit on climate change, an unknown individual or group breached CRU’s server and copied thousands of emails and computer files to various locations on the Internet.

These are the zipped up .txt versions.

Pseudoproxies have become a common tool in climate science to test reconstructions of past climate in the surrogate climate of climate models. E.g. von Storch et al. (2004) tested the reconstruction of Mann et al. (1998) with the AOGCMs ECHO-G and HadCM3. Their study found a significant underestimation of the low frequency temperature variability in the reconstruction and proposed that this feature may be inherent to reconstruction methods.
