Abstract

Some comments published recently on a study of time trends of daily maximum and minimum temperatures, Tmax and Tmin, have generated certain controversy with respect to a specific property of the Standard Normal Homogeneity Test (SNHT) and the applicability of the absolute and relative versions of this test. New insights to both questions are introduced in the present response. Copyright © 2010 Royal Meteorological Society
