Summary
Abstract: The goal in constructing a precipitation-based measure of ENSO was to
estimate the gradient of rainfall anomalies across the Pacific basin
and ensure a good relationship with SST- and pressure-based
indices. Areas were selected that represent the Maritime Continent
(MC) (100 N - 100S; 900 E - 1500 E) and central to eastern Pacific (P)
(100 N - 100 S; 1600 E - 1000 W). These regions capture the ... View entire text
