FIGURE E13. Northern Hemisphere: 500-hPa heights overlaid with standard deviation of high-pass filtered height (left) and normalized anomalous variance of high-pass filtered height (right). Heights are indicated by thick solid contours in both panels (interval is 60 m). High-pass filtered fields reflect fluctuations having periods less than 10 days, and are indicated by thin contours and shading. Contour interval for standard deviation is 15 m with values > 45 m shaded. Contour interval for normalized variance is 1 standard deviation, with positive values shown by solid contours and dark shading and negative values.
