  journal={Monthly Weather Review},
Abstract Contemporaneous correlations between geopotential heights on a given pressure surface at widely separated points on earth, referred to as teleconnections in this paper, are studied in an attempt to identify and document recurrent spatial patterns which might be indicative of standing oscillations in the planetary waves during the Northern Hemisphere winter, with time scales on the order of a month or longer. A review of existing literature on the subject reveals the existence of at… Expand
Teleconnections: Northern hemisphere lower stratospheric geopotential heights and Indian monsoon rainfall
SummaryIn this study a search for teleconnection is made between the Northern Hemisphere lower stratospheric geopotential heights and Indian Monsoon Rainfall (IMR) through the correlation analysisExpand
Dominant modes of geopotential height in the northern hemisphere in summer on interdecadal timescales
Empirical orthogonal function (EOF) analysis is performed on the field of the northern hemisphere geopotential height at 200-hPa using a 54-year (1958–2011) record of summer data on an interdecadalExpand
A Simplified Linear Framework for Interpreting Patterns of Northern Hemisphere Wintertime Climate Variability
Abstract The principal patterns of variability of the extratropical Northern Hemisphere (NH) wintertime circulation are examined, based on 42 yr of data from the NCAR–NCEP reanalyses. TheExpand
Teleconnection Pattern Influence on Sea-Wave Climate in the Bay of Biscay
Abstract The potential modification of hydrodynamic factors, such as waves, is a source of concern for many coastal communities because of its potential effect on shoreline evolution. In the northernExpand
A summer teleconnection pattern over the extratropical Northern Hemisphere and associated mechanisms
Using monthly data from the European Center for Medium-Range Weather Forecast 40-year reanalysis (ERA-40), we have revealed a teleconnection pattern over the extratropical Northern Hemisphere throughExpand
North American weather‐type frequency and teleconnection indices
The impact of teleconnections upon the surface climate has largely been examined via a response in monthly mean temperature or total precipitation. In this paper, a different approach is undertaken,Expand
Reconstruction of the winter Pacific-North American teleconnection pattern during 1895-1947 and its application in climatological studies
The Pacific-North American (PNA) teleconnection pattern is one of the most prominent teleconnection patterns in the Northern Hemisphere winter It manifests as anomalies in the 700 or 500 rnbExpand
Interannual Variability in North Atlantic Weather: Data Analysis and a Quasigeostrophic Model
AbstractThis paper addresses the effect of interannual variability in jet stream orientation on weather systems over the North Atlantic basin (NAB). The observational analysis relies on 65 yr ofExpand
The Arctic oscillation signature in the wintertime geopotential height and temperature fields
The leading empirical orthogonal function of the wintertime sea-level pressure field is more strongly coupled to surface air temperature fluctuations over the Eurasian continent than the NorthExpand
