I haven’t posted here at WUWT in a bit. I’ve been preoccupied writing for my own blog, Skating Under The Ice. It’s a work in progress. However, my climate work continues. There’s a paper out about a year old, unfortunately paywalled, regarding precipitation with some interesting conclusions. [UPDATE: available here, h/t to commenter Taphonomic]. The paper is called Changes in annual precipitation over the Earth’s land mass excluding Antarctica from the 18th century to 2013, by W.A. van Wijngaarden and A. Syed. Here is what ScienceDirect lists as the key points of the paper:
• Over 1½ million monthly precipitation totals observed at 1000 stations in 114 countries analysed.
• Data record much longer than 3 recent conflicting studies that analysed a few decades of data.
• No substantial difference found for stations located at northern, tropical and southern latitudes.
