David's plot for this zone looks a little different from yours in the ppt for the
last day.
It isn't just the different level of smoothing - some of the peak years are 0.2 to 0.3
different. Also some difference between Fig 3.2.4e for north of 35N, but here yours
stops at 65N, whereas David's goes to the sea-ice edge (or as far north as the
data allow).
I didn't realise HadISST was so different from Rayner et al (2005). I have a draft
of the latter. It will get submitted by end of May. It is another epic.
