It's been a year...

Since I started working on Climate. Have you ever wondered if you create a graph out of all the locations on the Earth as the nodes and the edges as the correlation between the timeseries of air temperature, pressure, etc, how would it look like ? The following is a heatmap of all the negative edges on the globe in Pressure. The negative edges are fascinating because they imply that two locations on the Earth have negative correlation in Pressure (anomalies) and not only that these negative edges correspond to some well known climate phenomenon like the El-Nino which is responsible for climate changes like droughts, hurricanes, warming throughout the globe. For one year my research life has been to find these dipoles and study their behavior. So far so good.

Nice work. Especially, something useful to the current and next generation.:) keep going. :)
On a lighter note, no wonder why you chose climate as the topic. :P As, you want to go to the place which would not be that chilling and so you can avoid all your health problems. :)
