A23D:
Madden-Julian Oscillation III Posters


Session ID#: 7937

Session Description:
The Madden–Julian Oscillation (MJO) is the dominant mode of intra-seasonal variability of the tropical atmosphere. It connects weather and climate and influences high-impact weather events around the globe.  Improving our understanding and prediction of MJO will benefit medium-range forecasting over the tropics and in the extratropics.  The international CINDY/DYNAMO/AMIE/LASP field campaigns collected unprecedented observations of the initiation and propagation of several MJO events during 2011/2012 boreal winter and led to extensive analysis and modeling research activities.  This session solicits contributions related to these activities as well as other observational, modeling and theoretical studies on all aspects of the MJO. Studies on interactions of MJO with the diurnal cycle, the monsoon, tropical cyclones and the ocean mixed layer etc and those that facilitate discussions related to the future  (2017-2019) Year of Maritime Continent field campaigns are  also welcome.
