Global Warming, Temperatures, Hurricanes, Time Series Analysis
Date of Defense
Some of the more significant effects of global warming are manifested in the rise of temperatures and the increased intensity of hurricanes. This study analyzed data on Annual, January and July temperatures in Miami in the period spanning from 1949 to 2011; as well as data on central pressure and radii of maximum winds of hurricanes from 1944 to present.
Annual Average, Maximum and Minimum Temperatures were found to be increasing with time. Also July Average, Maximum and Minimum Temperatures were found to be increasing with time. On the other hand, no significant trend could be detected for January Average, Maximum and Minimum Temperatures.
No significant trend was detected in the central pressures and radii of maximum winds of hurricanes, while the radii of maximum winds for the largest hurricane of the year showed an increasing trend.
