Abstract : The geographical distribution of the standard deviations of 500-mb monthly mean contour heights over Eurasia was determined from data for the period 1951 - 1962. The characteristics of dispersion centers computed from 500-mb monthly mean contour heights over the Eurasian Continent were analyzed. Some related problems of the 'method of index screening' were discussed with reference to the theory of binomial distribution. Dispersion centers determined by the deviation of contour heights were used to test the 'method of index screening', and the results obtained from this analysis were encouraging.
