Table 3: Periods 𝑇 𝑑 𝑟 , growth rates 𝜔 𝑑 𝑖 , and e-folding times 𝜏 𝑑 𝑖 , of modes for the 1949–68 basic state with 𝑄 𝑑 𝐹 = 1 5 0 0 K and 𝐶 𝑑 𝐹 = 5 × 1 0 4 K m−1 and for different 𝐾 𝑑 , which have the largest pattern correlations 𝐴 𝑐 with leading ML blocking, NWCB, and ISO modes for the 1949–68 basic state with standard parameterizations. Also shown are the mode numbers.
