Özet

Relationships between the variability of the North Atlantic oscillation (NAO) indices and the normalized precipitation at 78 stations in Turkey, and the influences of the extreme NAO index (NAOI) episodes and the year-to-year and longer time-scale variations in the NAO on the precipitation conditions were investigated. The results of the study have led to the following main conclusions and evaluations for Turkey:
