Summary
Abstract: A method is presented to reconstruct decadal variations of the North Atlantic
Oscillation (NAO). The spectral characteristics of the NAO on time scales of
decades and longer are of particular interest for the understanding of North
Atlantic ocean's atmosphere interactions. The reconstruction is based on a
transfer model calibration that uses bandpass-filtered time series. The maximum
overlap ... View entire text
