Table 1.

Correlations between SST and power dissipation index (PDI), as well as various quantities that appear in (3)(5) and with the 850–250-hPa wind shear (last column): P values are indicated in parentheses. All quantities, including SST, have been calculated from NCEP–NCAR reanalysis data over the period 1979–2010, and have been smoothed using a 1–3–4–3–1 filter. The outflow temperature was calculated using the algorithm presented in Bister and Emanuel (2002). The averaging regions and months are Atlantic: 6°–18°N, 20°–60°W, August–October; eastern North Pacific: 5°–16°N, 90°–170°W, July–September; and western North Pacific: 5°–15°N, 130°E–180°, July–November.
