  1. All statistically significant modes were considered (p < 5% level). Of the statistically significant single modes, no low-frequency (decadal or longer) modes showed both propagation and stationarity. Five of the fifty runs showed significance (p < 5% level) for a pair of leading modes. Despite passing the red-noise significance test, none showed a propagating signal.
