I recently downloaded annual temperature data for stations with
monthly and annual temperature data in Alaska (1950-2005, some 1930-
2005). I used Excel software to create annual temperature time plots
for the stations that have good quality data (few missing daily
max/mins). It's helpful to look at figure 2 of the link (below) on
Pacific-Decadal Oscillation (PDO) as I'm evaluating the rate of
surface warming at the Alaska stations.
PDO has had some influence on the overall rising trend in air
temperatures at some of the stations, but not much influence
compared to the pronounced warming trend coincident with rising
concentrations of GHGs in the atmosphere.
