General Climate Indicators within the NAFO Convention Area: NAO, SST, Air Temperature, and Ice cover

Oceanographic conditions in NAFO waters are to a large degree determined by the strength of the winter atmospheric circulation over the Northwest Atlantic, measured by the NAO Index.
The North Atlantic Oscillation (NAO) index as defined by Rogers (1984) is the difference in winter (December, January and February) sea level atmospheric pressures between the Azores and Iceland.
