Abstract: [Source: NOAA Climate Prediction Center, ]

The East Atlantic (EA) pattern is the second of three prominent modes of low-frequency variability over the North Atlantic, appearing in all months except May-August. The pattern is structurally similar to the NAO, and consists of a north-south dipole of anomaly centers which span the entire North Atlantic Ocean from east to ... View entire text
