National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) is an agency of the US Department of Commerce (DOC). They produce a daily and monthly edition of the Global Historic Climatology Network (GHCN) database for global temperature and precipitation information for climatological studies. However, these studies are extremely flawed as no temperature analyses with the GHCN are statistically valid. This paper will demonstrate the statistical flaws in using the temperature database. This study has only looked at the temperature portion of the database.
