The focus of this study is to examine the mechanisms involved in the interactions among large-scale atmospheric circulation patterns and how they are related to surface air temperature anomalies in the North American Arctic. Historical temperature data sets of Fairbanks, Alaska and Montreal, Quebec have been analyzed with respect to large-scale atmospheric circulation index data sets to investigate surface temperature anomalies in winter during the period 1960 to 2002.
