The dashed line indicates the location of the cross sections in (a) and (b) and thin black lines are geopotential heights. The darkest red indicates areas of ozone concentrations greater than 60 ppbv.

The data spans from 1979 to present, with spatial resolution 1.25[degrees] x 1.25[degrees], and the meteorological elements used are geopotential height, vertical velocity, horizontal wind field, and specific humidity.
Geopotential height (dam) at 500 hPa in the Northern Hemisphere at 0000 UTC 25 Feb 2018.
To assess intraseasonal extratropical forecast skill, weekly averaged 500-hPa geopotential height anomalies were verified in the Pacific-North American (PNA) region, an area particularly impacted by waves excited by active MJO convection (Mori and Watanabe 2008).
Besides, Lord and Petersen [31] used a combination of minimum geopotential height, minimum wind speed, and maximum relative vorticity at 850 hPa to detect TC center.
The accompanying geopotential height anomalies in the upper troposphere consisted of widespread warming in the tropics and much of the midlatitudes, a reflection of global SST warming trends during recent decades (e.g., Schubert et al.
