PARTIAL RECORD OF TEMPERATURES (SOLS 1534 TO 1684) THAT WENT HAYWIRE IN MSL YEAR 3 SUMMER. Low ground temperatures became increasingly bizzare/extraordinarily cold without matching cold air temperatures) starting at Sol 1640. The full record for MSL Year 3 Summer weather is here.

Figure 4: Tree stump-like object seen on Sol 1647, its position, and temperature anomalies in its area.

 

Figure 5: While low air temperatures for sols 1670 and 1671 were both -76 C, the ground temperature lows differed by 30 C.

 

FIGURE 6 - While the JPL had much to say about ground temperatures before and after MSL Sol 121, reality is that, as Ashima Research recorded, REMS gave us NO GROUND temperature on their original weather reports. Further they greatly revised their original reports, tossing out all wind data after we confronted them about it, and they revised day length to match our figures (none of their data was correct here). Compare the reports for sols 120 and 121.
