      Data from NASA on troposphere (the lowest 5 miles
      of the atmosphere) and the lower stratosphere
      (covering an altitude range of about 9-12 miles) is
      available here.
      <br><br><a href=http://wwwghcc.msfc.nasa.gov/temperature/ target=new>http://wwwghcc.msfc.nasa.gov/temperature/</a><br><br>I have noticed a pattern for the past several
      years, even including post 97-8 El Nino in 98, if you
      take out an anomaly along the equator--the summers
      come with strato very cold anomalies over Antarctica
      and the Southern Ocean and mid lat N. Hemispheric
      "spotty" cold anomalies along the mid-lattitude--basically
      at the lattitude where I reside here in Northern
      California. It seems to match up well with the cool break we
      get here in summers after crazy hot Junes--something
      I discussed here this spring.<br><br>Hydration of
      this?<br><br>I suspect that given the elliptical orbit, w/ the
      earth close to the sun in January, the electrical
      aspect of climate is significant in the summer in so far
      as increasing methane hydrate fields would in theory
      insulate between the earth and ocean--such that earth
      based electrical accumulations that would pay off in
      cirrus enhancement in the summer would be REDUCED, as
      much as it would be reflected back to enhance cirrus
      when the sun is closer. The isobars getting closer and
      the south pole being negitive explains the cold
      anomalies especially there, as cirrus there especially has
      less chance of existing. Get it?

        On Feb 28th, the Interplanetary Magnetic Field
        swung to a strong south-pointing orientation. That,
        coupled with an elevated solar wind speed and density,
        triggered a G-1 class geomagnetic storm. The result was
        some high latitude aurora. See this link for a
        photgraph of aurora observed over Quebec :
        <a href=http://www.spaceweather.com/aurora/images/01mar02/Moussette2.jpg target=new>http://www.spaceweather.com/aurora/images/01mar02/Moussette2.jpg</a> . As of right now, there are 3 sunspot regions,
        namely 9839, 9842, and 9845, that appear to be capable
        of producing M-class flares. Regions 9839 and 9842
        are close to rotating out of view over the western
        limb of the solar disk. Sunspot region 9845, however,
        is close to the sun's central meridian. A rather
        large coronal hole is also approaching the sun's
        central meridian, and coming into an Earth-pointing
        position. High speed colar wind gusts are likely around the
        first of next week.<br><br>The current solar and
