The graphs start from 1950 to show a full 66 year cycle of the PDO and AMO.
I’m graphing anomalies from the mean for all. Sea Ice is in millions of sq km.
PDO versus Arctic Extent – note that the satellite record for sea ice starts at peak of PDO
AMO versus Antarctic Extent
July in the USA max temp graph looks like the 1930s (but not quite as warm).
Kinda looks like the AMO
The AMO for each month as of Dec 2015. Some months the AMO is still high. Some it is low.
This graph compares Anomaly Percent (ie if the anomaly is 1,000,000 sq km and the mean is 10,000,000 the value would be 10%)
Update: Experimental Graph Removed until I can fix my code.
Update 2: Experimental Graph 2:
Antarctic Ice Extent Anomaly vs Arctic Ice Extent Anomaly vs AMO vs PDO from 2010
(Arctic is anomalies. I will try other values later)
It was in perfect synch for a while.
South / North
Sep/Oct/Nov/Dec only go up to 2014 of course. 2005 was the peak AMO (approximately).
And its downhill to same kind of late 70s cold that made people think a new ice age was coming.
The good news. It should be another 25 years to reach bottom. The bad news. 2005 style warmth is 60 years away.
The AMO syncs up with climate change very nicely. This is just a view I like. The deepest blue sections are the 1970s.
1978/79 was the coldest winter in US history.
