Table of linear correlations of atmospheric/ocean time series
Correlation Time series
The time series used are described on the web page
They are monthly time series that that range anywhere between 1948 and the
present. Some time series have values for only a portion of that time period.
Some time series are not defined for certain seasons.
Correlations were calculated for all possible years. Some pairs of correlation
values will therefore have a different number of years that went into the
calculation. A value was calculated for each month, separately and then, for
all months (though NOT annually averaged). Calculated correlations are linear.
Possible relationships may exist if the variables are in quadrature even if
the correlation coefficient is 0. You should plot the time series versus each
other to see what the relationship is. Where data is not defined, values are
listed as missing "***".
