abstract
Teleconnections are measurable indices which capture some climate phenomenon occurring on a large spatial and temporal scale. Perhaps the best known example is El Ni\~no, known more formally as the El Ni\~no southern oscillation index, which describes a global pressure differential leading to warmer ocean waters in the Pacific Ocean off the coast of Columbia and Ecuador. These warmer waters influence weather patterns thousands of miles away and for months into the future, and show a measurable impact on average global temperatures. Other recurring teleconnections exist, and similarly involve large scale spatial and temporal consequences for weather patterns.
