time series of SLA.gif;  spectrum of SLA.gif.

Variance of the full signal: 139.6 cm2
Variance of the low frequency signal: 77.29 cm2
Variance of the high frequency signal: 15.11 cm2 (half power 180 days)

- rms of HF SLA.gif; mean surface circulation.gif

- EKE signal for the Low frequeny signal.gif, and the High frequeny signal.gif
- Time series of the EKE signals for the full, low, and frequencies: eke_ft.gif
