    Other sources show no such drop.

    Which URL are you using?

    This one works for me:

    http://www.giss.nasa.gov/

    Data here:

    http://data.giss.nasa.gov/gistemp/

    They were down for a week or so but have been working for a while.

    Maybe what you are seeing is a cached version?

    LOL,

    I can tell you that it does not take a month to fix a technical problem with a server.Not only that they can just try another server if the current one not getting it fixed within 3 days time as it would be the case 99.99% of the time.

    I think GISS is deliberately blocking the access and hoping we are too dumb to fall for their excuses.

      We operate within 5-9’s … that is .. 99.999990% up-time. This is standard industry practice for any high visibility or mission critical system.

      I agree sunset, the “technical problems with the GISS webserver” for a month now does seem a little disingenuous. If they were a private for-profit business, they’d be out-of-business by now. There is no excuse for it taking this long to fix whatever technical problem existed.
      Also, I noticed that prior to it going down, when you accessed the station data in table form, the data only went to 2006 or 2007.

      Can’t find anyone at GISS with the technical knowledge to repair the fault.

    It takes time to alter the data.

  5. All the publications seem to be behind a paywall too. They used to bge accessible on line.

  6. Maybe they’re snowed under at work?
