Abstract:
[Source: NOAA Earth System Research Laboratory, Physical Sciences Division, http://www.esrl.noaa.gov/psd/ ] The timeseries is calculated from the HadISST and the NCEP OI Datasets. It is the standardized Nina 12 minus the Nina 4 with a 5 month running mean applied which is then standardized using the 1950-1979 period. Time Interval: Monthly Time Coverage: 1870 to present Update Status: updated monthly
