CAVEATS!
Ignore at your peril.
Create Time Series
create monthly mean time series from various datasets to use as custom.
Correlation
Correlate these time series with gridded variables.
Composites
Composite using these time series with gridded variables.
Some PSD datasets and products are not up-to-date due to a system problem. We are working on a fix.
 

Climate Indices: Monthly Atmospheric and Ocean Time Series

Purpose: Plot, analyze and compare different monthly mean climate time series.

Anomalies are now available. Climatology is entire time period of time series. I am actively working on improvements and additions. Suggestions are welcome.


Time Series 1? If custom what is filename?
If custom what is time series title?

Time Series 2? If custom what is filename?
If custom, what is time series title

Year range? (1948 to present): to
Action?

Plot time series
Optional Set y range: to | Type of Plot: Line   Boxes
Optional Apply Running Mean to monthly values:: months (use odd number)
Correlate two time series
Lag of 1st time series? Positive lag values indicate 1st time series leads 2nd; negative lag values means 1st lags second.

Correlate using?All months or seasons in time-series (1 value) Each months or season calculated separately
Plot autocorrelation function
Plot Cross correlation function
For all actions:
Time Averaging?Monthly   Seasonal Average First Month of season: Second:
Type of data?Mean   Anomaly
If anomaly:

Year range for climo timeseries 1 (default is whole range) (1948 to present): to

Year range for climo timeseries 2 (default is whole range) (1948 to present): to


Please reference time series use in publications! Time series that are regularily updated have a * after their name.

Feedback
Please let me know if you have other index time series for possible inclusion. I update the values when I can; sometimes they may be out-of-date. Sometimes old values change when new data is received, the index definition changes or mistakes are found. I don't make any guarantees though I will fix any errors I find out about. Use at your own risk. You can email me at cathy.smith@noaa.gov for new time series, comments, etc.
