Figure 8.21: Comparison
of eigenvectors for the leading EOFs of the SSTs between the ENSO time-scale (<12
years) (upper panels) and the decadal time scale (>12 years) (lower panels)
for (a) observation, and (b) the MRI coupled climate model, respectively (Yukimoto,
1999). Numbers in bracket at the upper left show explained variance in each mode.
