Figure 1 in the article titled "Sea Surface Temperatures and their Influences on Drought Patterns on the Canadian Prairie" by Amir Shabbar the T2 time series is identical to T3 because the PDO graph has been produced in both the middle and the lower panels. The correct figure is below.

Figure 1: The time variations in indices of: (T1) ENSO defined as average SST anomaly between (5N-5S, 120W-170W); (T2) PDO defined as leading mode of SST anomaly in the North Pacific, north of 20N; and (T3) AMO defined as SST Anomaly in the North Atlantic.
