EXTREME HIGH  TIDES

ARE  DOMINANT AT THE AMO'S  TOP END

 


Since no good reference could be found showing direct link between the AMO and the tidal events simple test is performed:
the 20 largest tidal events for 1860 - 2000 as listed in the (Decadal Climate Variability, R Ray), 30 year average is calculated and
plotted along the AMO 3yma index . It is clear that the extreme tidal effects are more frequent during the positive than negative
AMO phase, but the cause-consequence relationship is not clear. This is also contrary to the Keeling's assertion that stronger
tides are associated with cooler surface water.
