The atmospheric modulation of extended wet and dry spells over South Africa, 1958-1978

Auteur :
TYSON, P. D.

Description :
Differences in annual geopotential heights at the 850 and 500 mb. levels between 16 pairs of stations have been submitted to principal component analysis to identify the most important statistically uncorrelated pressure patterns accounting for the variance of the annual pressure field over South Africa and adjacent oceans. Regional variations in annual rainfall are shown to be significantly linked to variations in both low latitude forcing and mid-latitude forcing. (AJC).
