Climate Prediction Center(CPC)Monthly Antarctic Oscillation Index

Metadata Updated: March 10, 2021

The Antarctic Oscillation (AAO) is a leading teleconnection pattern in the Southern Hemisphere circulation. It is calculated as the first Empirical Orthogonal Function (EOF) for height anomalies poleward of 20 degrees latitude for the Southern Hemisphere. The goal of the EOF procedure is to capture the maximum amount of explained variance in the circulation fields.
