Astro: "But this point is moot because your claim (that the missing north polar regions are colder) is false. The regions without data are the Arctic ocean regions, and over the ocean, heat flux through the sea ice from the (much) warmer water below holds mean winter temperatures to about a minimum of -40 C. As Loren points out, there are much colder winter mean temperatures than this (down to about -60 C) over high latitude land regions, e.g. Greenland, and northern Siberia, where there *are* weather stations."

Thank you. You and Loren make it worthwhile to come back here from time to time.
