Reconciling North Atlantic climate modes: revised monthly indices for the East Atlantic and the Scandinavian patterns beyond the 20th century

Laia Comas-Bru and Armand Hernández
Data sets

Monthly EOF-based indices of NAO, EA and SCA indices covering the period from 1851 to present (Dataset 2); and compare them with their equivalent instrumental indices calculated as standarised sea-level press L. Comas-Bru and A. Hernández https://doi.org/10.1594/PANGAEA.892769

Short summary
This review presents new EOF-based monthly indices of the east Atlantic and the Scandinavian patterns covering the period from 1851 to present. The paper also includes a comparison with their analogous instrumental indices, provides insights into the reasons why different sources of data may give slightly different time series and demonstrates that using these patterns to explain climate variability beyond the winter season needs to be done carefully due to their non-stationary behaviour.
