Description:
Abstract: This is one of the CPC’s Monthly Atmospheric and SST Indices. It is the 200-hPa zonal wind anomalies averaged over the area 5oN – 5oS, 165oW-110oW. The anomalies are departures from the 1981-2010 base period means.
Purpose: This index is constructed for applications in climate monitoring, climate analysis and verifications of numerical models.
