The First Two Common Cycles from an Analysis of North Pacific SST

Figure 17 Climate

Figure 17. Left: The first two "common cycles" from an analysis of North Pacific SST. These patterns are the dominant patterns in the PDO and the "Victoria mode", showing that they are dominated by stationary dynamics. Right: The time trend of the first common cycle with the stochastic cycles form the PDO and the North Pacific High (From Mendelssohn and Bessey, in prep.).
