Abstract: [Source: NOAA Climate Prediction Center, http://www.cpc.ncep.noaa.gov/ ]

The Polar/ Eurasian pattern appears only in the winter, and is the most prominent mode of low-frequency variability during December and February. The pattern consists of one main anomaly center over the polar region, and separate centers of opposite sign to the polar anomaly over Europe and northeastern China. Thus, the ... View entire text
