Abstract

Eigenvector analysis of 30 years of monthly and annual temperature data at a selected network of 46 stations in Argentina and 4 stations in Chile reveals that the first three patterns of year-to-year variability account for more than 60% of the total variance. Temperature anomalies are found to be of the same sign over pratically the whole area, but these are highly seasonal, being correlated with the east-west pressure difference across the tropical Atlantic in fall and winter, and positively in early summer. (JPB).
