A061:
Local Processes and Global Impact of the Indo-Pacific Maritime Continent





Session ID#: 26604

Session Description:
The Indo-Pacific Maritime Continent (MC) hosts the strongest atmospheric convection center in the tropics and a unique monsoon system. The MC is critical to subseasonal-to-seasonal (S2S) prediction because of its barrier effect on the Madden-Julian Oscillation (MJO). Its intricate land-sea-terrain distributions make observations and numerical simulations of its multi-scale processes and phenomena extremely difficult. To meet the challenge of understanding and predicting the local processes and global impact of the MC, the international field program Years of the Maritime Continent (YMC) will take place in 2017 to 2019. Many special field campaigns will be conducted during YMC, including Propagation of Intra-Seasonal Tropical Oscillations (PISTON). This session welcomes contributions aiming at advancing understanding and prediction of processes and phenomena in the MC region and their global impact. Of special interest are observations, numerical modeling, and theoretical exploration on convection, circulation, and air-sea-land interaction on diurnal and intraseasonal timescales.
