Climate Change Indices at LDEO/IRI Climate Data Library
Entry ID: LDEO_INDICES


Summary
Abstract: This collection consists of climate change indices including Southern
Oscillation Index (SOI), North Atlantic Oscillation (NAO), sea level
pressure anomalies (SLP), sea surface temperature (SST) anomalies,
and global temperature. These indices are important in the monitoring
of El Nino Southern Oscillation (ENSO) events.

Data sets consist of:
Darwin Island Sea Level Pressure (SLP) anomalies: 1882-present
Easter island Sea Level Pressure (SLP) anomalies: 1951-1995
Global Temperature Anomalies: 1867-1994
Summer Monsoon Rainfall: 1813-1998
North Atlantic Oscilation (NAO) Index: 1864-1995
El Nino Regions Sea Surface Temperature (SST) Anomalies: 1856-1991
Southern Oscillation Index (SOI): 1951-present
Tahiti Sea Level Pressure (SLP) anomalies: 1951-present
