Working in concert with the WCRP-WWRP/WGNE MJO Task Force, effort will be focused on research, model evaluation and predictability/prediction skill studies on the interactions between the Maritime Continent (MC) and the MJO, including an effort to improve local MC forecast skill and resources.
This focus is motivated by the perception that the MC represents a natural predictability barrier for the MJO that is exacerbated by limited understanding of the MC as a natural predictability barrier and also to a great extent by our limitations in model representations of the MJO and MC interactions.
The subproject will exploit a number of modeling and observational resources, namely:
- Year of Maritime Continent - -
- Office of Naval Research PISTON Field Campaign (website TBS)
Please refer to thefor more details on motivation, objectives and proposed tasks.
