Two major objections of the correlation method, using the linear inter- and intra-level correlation coefficients, are explained, and a comparison is made with two other systems, the monthly mean profile and a recently developed characteristic method. For good achievements, the correlation method is restricted to the use of parameters from the jet stream layer. In contrast, the characteristics method promises successful application for a variety of parameter selections, even from the lower stratosphere. This is explainable by the connection of the individual profile with certain weather types whose reflections are found at all levels.
