Description:
Abstract:
The North Pacific (NP) Index is the area-weighted sea level pressure (SLP) over the region 30N-65N, 160E-140W and is used to measure decadal variations linked to El Nino (ENSO) and La Nina events. The NP data set consists of; - Monthly NP Index - November-March NP Index - November-March NP Anomaly Index The NP data set is available from: http://climatedataguide.ucar.edu/guidance/north-pacific-index-npi-trenberth-and-hurrell-monthly-and-winter
