quote: Satellite-based measurements of decadal-scale temperature change in the lower troposphere have indicated cooling relative to Earth's surface in the tropics...We have derived a diurnal correction that, in the tropics, is of the opposite sign from that previously applied. When we use this [correction] we find tropical warming consistent with that found at the surface
