Read me file for NAO project

Project to relate NAO phase to snow cover in Scotland.

NAO Data taken from: http://www.cru.uea.ac.uk/~timo/datapages/naoi.htm http://www.cru.uea.ac.uk/cru/data/nao/

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.
