Summary
Abstract: [Source: NOAA Climate Prediction Center, http://www.cpc.ncep.noaa.gov/ ]

This data set consist of monthly sea level pressure (SLP) standardized anomalies in Indonesia (INDO) and the Eastern Pacific (EPAC) and the Equatorial Southern Oscillation Index (EQSOI) (EPAC-INDO). The standard base period is 1951-1980.
