Abstract

Variability of the North Atlantic Oscillation and the Tropical Atlantic dominate the climate of the North Atlantic sector, the underlying ocean and surrounding continents on interannual to decadal time scales. Here we review these phenomena. their climatic impacts and our present state of understanding of their underlying cause. Copyright (C) 2001 Royal Meteorological Society.
