Welcome New Members! We want to hear from you. Register, stop lurking and start posting!

Hillybilly (David), Blackee (Anthony) & me, 93ben (Ben) have taken over running the forum after the passing of Rivergirl (Robyn) last year . I just wanted to let you know that I'm currently in the progress of cleaning up and updating things after I was able to finally gain access to it. We will post more later.

New topic which was bought up in the normal threads so we can discuss it here.

We have seen how the BOM operate, they had a high quality dataset, but when they were pushed to release vital information, such as the codes to how they made such adjustments, they scrapped the dataset, and released Acorn.

Thankfully, Ken Stewart has been studying this for 2 years.

Here is the adjustments that he uncovered.

After 2 years of trying to get info on these adjustments, he is still being stalled.

I would class that dataset as one of the worst, possibly as bad as NIWA, in the world.

Not even Hansen would go to such lengths....actually he would. And did.
