Figure 8.1:
The correlation between the Bergen September temperature and the global SLP. The confidence limit was estimated by applying a MCtest to the times series from the location of maximum correlation, assuming that this estimate is valid for all locations. [stats_uib_8_1.m]

By computing the correlation coefficients between the time series from each grid box and the Bergen temperature, it is possible to study the geographical dependence of the Bergen temperature (60N,5E) on the SLP. Hints of a wave train pattern running from the Gulf of Mexico to Fennoscandia can be seen.
