Northern Hemisphere Teleconnection Patterns

The Climate Prediction Center provides online data of Standardization Amplitudes of Northern Hemisphere (NH) Teleconnection Patterns. Teleconnection patterns "reflect large-scale changes in the atmospheric wave and jet stream patterns, and influence temperature, rainfall, storm tracks, and jet stream location/ intensity over vast areas." This site provides documentation for the teleconnection...
