NCAR_CCSM3 20thc run 1: No stadium-wave signature. (a) Two plots are given. The first is the M-SSA spectrum for this model. No modes fall outside the red-noise envelope and no modes are well-separated from others; thus no significant mode can be identified. The second plot in (a) shows the cumulative variance accounted for by the first twenty modes. (b) Shows the RCs for this model. RC1 has a multidecadal character, but it is not a propagating signal. It is a moot point, as none of the modes fall outside the red-noise envelope.
