Does anyone know how the weather stations are distributed around the globe? I'm pretty sure there are none on the oceans, which cover about 70% of the planet, and I have a sneaky suspicion that there are none in South America, or Africa, and only a few throughout Asia.

Yes, Dom, there are stations in Russia and China, two countries whose 20th century was hardly an oasis of peace, security and tranquility in which keen young chaps eagerly went out to take readings everyday! As for statistical technique, ask Prof. Jones!
