Using an updated Kaplan et al. global SST anomaly (SSTA) dataset (1870–1999) a canonical representation of El Niño–Southern Oscillation (ENSO) is constructed. When this canonical ENSO is subtracted from the data, a residual (non-ENSO) dataset for SSTA is left that includes interseasonal to multidecadal variability. Over the eastern equatorial Pacific (Niño-3) the canonical ENSO accounts for about 79% of the total SSTA variability, and the residual, dominated by decadal timescales, accounts for… CONTINUE READING
