Abstract: A temporal and spatial Empirical Orthogonal Function (EOF) analysis has been performed on monthly maximum Sea Surface Temperature (SST) satellite data over eight years (July 1981 - August 1989) to examine the SST patterns of variability off northwest Africa. Only these two first temporal and spatial EOF modes are significantly above the noise level. The EOF method is efficient in compressing monthly SST satellite imagery off northwest Africa, with a great percentage of the total variance being accounted by only two modes.
