Empirical Orthogonal Function (EOF) analysis for various climate variables (2m air temperature, precipitation, 500 hPa geopotential height) from the transient 21,000-year-long paleoclimate simulation 'sim2bl' of Timm and Timmermann (2007). Explained variances, loading pattern (in units of the variables) and the normalized principal component time series are shown.

Four different regions (global, Northern Hemisphere, Southern Hemisphere, tropical latitude belt) were analyzed in three different time ranges (21,000BP - preindustrial time, deglaciation 21,000-10,000 BP, Holocene 10,000BP - preindustrial time).
