The North Pacific Oscillation – West Pacific Teleconnection Pattern : Mature-Phase Structure and Winter Impacts

  title={The North Pacific Oscillation – West Pacific Teleconnection Pattern : Mature-Phase Structure and Winter Impacts},
  author={MEGAN E. LINKIN and Sumant Nigam},
The North Pacific Oscillation (NPO) in sea level pressure and its upper-air geopotential height signature, the west Pacific (WP) teleconnection pattern, constitute a prominent mode of winter midlatitude variability, the NPO/WP. Its mature-phase expression is identified from principal component analysis of monthly sea level pressure variability as the second leading mode just behind the Pacific–North American variability pattern. NPO/WP variability, primarily on subseasonal time scales, is… CONTINUE READING
