Figure 5: Time series of decadal (5-winter running means) Mediterranean-averaged winter precipitation (mm/year, left axis) and the selected MO climatic indices (right axis, for Algiers-Cairo; for Gibraltar-Israel; for France-Levantine; for Marseille-Jerusalem; and based on principal components analysis). Notice that the interannual variability is of interest more than the value of the indices itself.
