Hurrell's North Atlantic Oscillation (NAO) Index from NCAR
Entry ID: NCAR_NAO


Summary
Abstract: The North Atlantic Oscillation (NAO) is based on the difference of
normalized sea level pressure (SLP) between Lisbon, Portugal or Ponta
Delgada, Azores and Stykkisholmur/Reykjavik, Iceland since 1864. The
SLP anomalies at each station were normalized by division of each
seasonal pressure by the ... View entire text
