Abstract.The influence of zonal and meridional flow on surface temperature in the North Atlantic/European region is investigated. The degree to which the North Atlantic Oscillation (NAO) index reflects these two different flow types is considered, as is the relationship between the NAO index and surface temperature. Zonal and meridional circulation indices extending back to the early nineteenth or eighteenth centuries are based on surface pressure observations from the North Atlantic and Europe… CONTINUE READING
