Abstract:
The North Atlantic Oscillation (NAO) is based on the difference of normalized sea level pressure (SLP) between Lisbon, Portugal and Stykkisholmur/Reykjavik, Iceland from 1864 through 1996 for the months December-March. This index was provided by Hurrell (1995). Seasonal means based on these calendar months as the centers-of-action of the NAO tend to move about or are not as well defined during the other calendar months. See: http://jisao.washington.edu/data_sets/nao/ The NAO data of Hurrell at the JISAO differ slightly from the Hurrell NAO Index published online at NCAR http://www.cgd.ucar.edu/cas/jhurrell/indices.html See: http://www.oceansatlas.org/servlet/CDSServlet?status=ND0xMjczNS40MDI3NCY2PWVuJjMzPXdlYi1zaXRlcyYzNz1pbmZv for more information on the NAO Index and other online sources of NAO data.
