Erlykin, AD; Laken, BA; Wolfendale, AW (2011). Fluctuations, in some climate parameters. JOURNAL OF ATMOSPHERIC AND SOLAR-TERRESTRIAL PHYSICS, 73(8-Jul), 805-809.

There is argument as to the extent to which there has been an increase over the past few decades in the frequency of the extremes of climatic parameters, such as temperature, storminess, precipitation, etc, an obvious point being that Global Warming might be responsible. Here we report results on those parameters of which we have had experience during the last few years: Global surface temperature, Cloud Cover and the MODIS Liquid Cloud Fraction. In no case we have found indications that fluctuations of these parameters have increased with time. (C) 2011 Elsevier Ltd. All rights reserved.
