Abstract: [Source: NOAA Climate Prediction Center, ]

The East Atlantic/ West Russia (EATL/WRUS) pattern is one of two prominent that affects Eurasia during most of the year. This pattern is prominent in all months except June-August, and has been referred to as the Eurasia-2 pattern by Barnston and Livezey (1987). In Winter, two main anomaly centers, located over the Caspian ... View entire text
