Moving beyond simple correlations between teleconnection indices and temperature and precipitation anomalies, synoptic climatology has been able to provide insight on the spatiotemporal manifestation of teleconnection anomalies, as well as further understanding in terms of teleconnection-related anomalies in circulation pattern frequencies that can lead to extreme events over individual areas. In this progress report, the AA. focus on a number of recent papers that, broadly defined, assess two realms of teleconnections : the North Atlantic circulation, largely focusing on the North Atlantic Oscillation; and the north and tropical Pacific circulation, as manifest in El Ninõ–Southern Oscillation, the Pacific North American pattern, and the Pacific Decadal Oscillation. In each of these two regions, they highlight the major goals and results of recent synoptic research.
