In this section, results of the analysis of the global climate regimes are presented and discussed. First, we show that climate regimes are detectable as the interdecadal variability of the GSAT series. Regime periods, as identified within this series, are compared to decadal signals of other large-coverage air temperature series. Finally, the same periods are used to show variations of the frequency and relative strength of ENSO events and of the long-term trends within the SOI.
