REGIMES IN THE WINTERTIME CIRCULATION OVER NORTHERN EXTRATROPICS .1. OBSERVATIONAL EVIDENCE

Abstract:

Regimes of the northern extratropical circulation in winter are identified in this paper as clusters of atmospheric states in a low-dimensional phase space generated by the leading EOFs of eddy geopotential fields. Our algorithm seeks points corresponding to local maxima for the density of atmospheric states; subsequently, a cluster is defined around each density maximum as that portion of the phase space in which the observed density can be locally approximated by a unimodal function. Six cl...
