Mid-May 2009 ENSO and AMO Update

I’ve moved to WordPress.  This post can now be found at Mid-May 2009 ENSO and AMO Update

NINO3.4 SST ANOMALIES

NINO3.4 SST anomalies have continued their rise. They are still within ENSO neutral temperatures and have reached (approximately) the levels they had climbed to last July/August.

AMO

I’ll use the North Atlantic SST anomalies as a proxy for the AMO. As noted in earlier posts, to illustrate the Atlantic Multidecadal Oscillation, the NOAA Earth System Research Laboratory (ESRL) simply detrends North Atlantic SST anomaly data, but they do this to a long-term SST anomaly dataset. Since the OI.v2 SST dataset that's updated weekly begins in 1990, it does not seem appropriate to detrend that North Atlantic dataset.

North Atlantic SST anomalies appear to have ended their precipitous decline. They are now hovering at approximately +0.07 deg C.

The OI.v2 SST data is available through the NOAA NOMADS system:

The Smith and Reynolds SST Posts DOES NOT LIST ALL SST POSTS. I stopped using ERSST.v2 data for SST when NOAA deleted it from NOMADS early in 2009.

Please use the search feature in the upper left-hand corner of the page for posts on specific subjects.

NOTE: I’ve discovered that some of the links to older posts provide blank pages. While it’s possible to access that post by scrolling through the history, that’s time consuming. There’s a quick fix for the problem, so if you run into an absent post, please advise me. Thanks.
