Abstract
The linkage between sea surface temperature (SST) and surface winds from tropical and subtropical regions of the North Atlantic, and ground temperature and rainfall amount from southern and central Europe are studied using canonical correlation analysis (CCA). The data sets which consist of monthly means span the interval from January 1965 to February 1985. The effects of Atlantic processes on European temperature and rainfall anomalies are seasonal dependent. Two types of variability patterns are found: one in which the response to Atlantic forcing is rather local (Iberian area) and the other that seems to be related to some large scale phenomena. The North Atlantic oscillation signal is revealed by the Atlantic-European patters of winter variability.
