Abstract:
This data set includes indices of sea surface temperature (SST) anomalies from Kaplan, et al (1998) and Cane, et al (1997). These data sets were analyzed using the Optimal Smoother (OS) analysis of MOHSST5, a version of the GOSTA dataset from the U.K. Meteorological Office. For each index there is the straight average of the values available in the MOHSST5 dataset; the value corresponding to the OS analysis, and the theoretical estimate for the rms error in the analyzed index. The indices are: EqNA Equatorial North Atlantic average EqNA [5N-20N,80W-15W]. GL Global mean [30S-60N]. GT Global equatorial mean [5S-5N]. GT30 Global tropical mean [30S-30N]. NAc North Atlantic (caption) NAc index [30N-50N, 60W-0W]. NAf North Atlantic (figure) NAf index [35N-70N, 75W-10W]. NAi North Atlantic (intended) NAi index [35N-60N, 60W-0W]. NINO3 NINO3 index [5S-5N, 150W-90W]. NINO3.4 NINO3.4 index [5S-5N, 170W-120W]. NP North Pacific NP index [30N-50N, 150E-120W]. WP Western Pacific (or Warm Pool) WP Index[5S-5N, 120E-170E] from Cane, etal (1997).
