    Uncanny resemblance to 2012. Guess they had La Nina then too!!!

  2. If you install it, all temperatures before 1950 are decreased by 10% in every nc file you open.

    I tried installing it -PanoplyWin64 on Windows 7 64bit – extracted all folders/files from the zip, installed the latest Java (also followed their instructions to use the Java utility to make sure java is installed (it reports: You have the recommended Java installed (Version 7 Update 5).) …… But when I run Panoply.exe it says no JVM could be found. … Any ideas?

    • You need the Java runtime environment JRE. Look for that at the Java web site.

        Figured it out – the problem was using Chrome as a browser (32-bit) and the Java website automatically downloads the bit-version matching the browser — but Panoply needed the 64-bit, so had to dig down in the java website to get it.
