Plotted using the NASA MERRA-2 Reanalysis and the NCEP Climate Forecast System Reanalysis datasets
To reference this plot in a publication, please include the lines " Image provided by the NOAA-ESRL Physical Sciences Laboratory, Boulder Colorado from their Web site at https://www.esrl.noaa.gov/". You should also reference the dataset(s) itself. Please add comments/suggestions to the reanalyses.org WRIT page.

*Slope: Calculated from the NCL routine , which does a least-squares fit. Slope is given in units of 'per year'. Slope may be calculated with missing values depending on your selections of dataset, level, and variable.
