The investigation didn't find an increase in temperature - it found an increase in the RANGE of temperature from night to day - ie the difference
betwen daytime and night time temperatures increased.
Trouble is teh amount of the increase was insignificant - and "extra" 1.8 deg C was within hte normal range expected at that location and time of
so ther's been a series of studies done resulting in the effect being atributed to "natural" variations.
attributes most of it to low clouods - which are thicker, warmer and closer to the ground
so have a much higher effect on ground temperatures.
Both arguments are summarised at www.celsias.com...

I'm surprised no-one has come out & done a similar study of the effect of groundings over Europe as a result of the Icelandic volcano erruption. A
few more studies of similar phenomena would give us better conclusions than just 1 - indeed I suspect the parameters of such a study could probably be
defined in advance ready to be done as soon as somethign similar manifested.
