BSTRACT: A new method is proposed for exploring the amplification of the atmosphere with respect to the surface. The method, which I call "temporal evolution", is shown to reveal the change in amplification with time. In addition, the method shows which of the atmospheric datasets are similar and which are dissimilar. The method is used to highlight the differences between the HadAT2 balloon, UAH MSU satellite, RSS MSU satellite, and CGCM3.1 model datasets.
