Read me file for NAO project
Project to relate NAO phase to snow cover in Scotland.
Snow cover data taken from: SSGB Bonacina http://www.neforum2.co.uk/ferryhillweather/bonacina.html Met Office UKCP09 http://www.metoffice.gov.uk/climatechange/science/monitoring/ukcp09/download/index.html Station data: BADC MIDAS extract
Code in R
Files: Bonacina Detail relationship between Boncina index and NAO. Rmd (markdown) file superceeds plain R file.
NAO_consistancy Are there trends in NAO? Can we forecast winter NAO from early winter NAO index?
NAO_MOgrid Relationship between NAO and the MO UKCP09 snow lying grid.
NAO_SSGB Relationship between NAO and SSGB for example stations.
The _summary files are written in markdown and should be treated like a report of the analyses undertaken. These should be read (preferably the html version) to follow the work.
NAO_dataimport and NAO_functions Import most data required for the above analyses files and also contain the longer functions.
