  • Abstract Atlantic SST variability in the twentieth century is analyzed factoring the influence of natural SST variability in the Pacific basin and the secular change in global SSTs. The tropical and northern extratropical basins are analyzed together using the extended EOF technique, which permits extraction of the interannual and multidecadal modes in the pan-Atlantic basin in a single step. The leading mode of Pacific-uninfluenced SST variability is a multidecadal oscillation focused in the… CONTINUE READING
