The Continuum and Dynamics of Northern Hemisphere Teleconnection Patterns

  title={The Continuum and Dynamics of Northern Hemisphere Teleconnection Patterns},
  author={Christian L E Franzke and Steven B. Feldstein},
This study presents an alternative interpretation for Northern Hemisphere teleconnection patterns. Rather than comprising several different recurrent regimes, this study suggests that there is a continuum of teleconnection patterns. This interpretation indicates either that 1) all members of the continuum can be expressed in terms of a linear combination of a small number of real physical modes that correspond to basis functions or 2) that most low-frequency patterns within the continuum are… CONTINUE READING
