Summary
Abstract: A summary of the GPCP (V2x79) precipitation-based ENSO indices (EI,
LI, ESPI)

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 ... View entire text
