Summary of the statistically significant blocking anomalies associated with the tropical modes under investigation in this study. Subtropical to midlatitudes (sub) are defined as the range 30°–48°N and mid- to high latitudes (high) are defined as the range 48°–72°N. Plus (+) signs indicate enhanced blocking, circles indicate decreased blocking, and Minus (–) signs indicates no change, while no differentiation is made between time scales. Asterisks mark agreement between reanalysis and relaxation experiment, and for the MJO, a signal for early (late) phases has to agree for at least 2 out of phases 1–4 (5–8) to be noted here. Results that contrast with previous results are marked with square brackets, and novel results are marked with curly brackets.
