Finally, whenever a new satellite is launched, it may not behave the same as the satellite it replaced. But regardless, satellites are a very useful tool for understanding global changes in climate. The fingerprints were based on computer calculations made with human-caused changes in greenhouse gas levels in the atmosphere.

In particular, the researchers wanted to know whether they could detect a human fingerprint in the seasonal cycle of temperature changes in the atmosphere as the atmosphere heats and cools during different seasons of the year. They discovered that in the lower part of the atmosphere the troposphere , the fingerprint of global warming can be found in the satellite measurements of the changing seasonal cycles of temperature.

They discovered that in the Northern Hemisphere, the warming during the summertime is larger than the wintertime warming. So, in the north between about 30 and 60 N , the seasonal temperature variations is increasing. In the Southern Hemisphere mid-latitudes, there is similar behavior, but the seasonal differences in warming are smaller. The reason the north and south behave differently is because north of the equator there is a lot more land and a lot less ocean compared to the Southern Hemisphere. Just take out a globe, find the equator, you will see for yourself.

But as you continue further toward the poles, say north or south of 60 degrees latitude, the trend reverses. The reversal is particularly evident in the north. The range of seasonal temperatures is becoming smaller. The main reason for this is the loss of ice.


As the planet warms, ice melts and exposes more water and changes the reflectivity of the planet. Much of the fingerprint work that has been done over the last 30 years looks at broad-brush changes in annual climate. The focus on climate fingerprinting with the changing seasons is relatively new and makes this paper a significant contribution.

For tropospheric temperature, a human-caused signal is now evident in the seasonal cycle itself. Want to Read Currently Reading Read. Other editions.
