Abstract : Contents: Oscillations in a simple equational climate system; Large-Scale atmosphere-ocean feedback mechanisms in relation to short-term climate fluctuations; Thermally-driven circulation in an equational Beta-plane: Hadley and Walker circulation during the winter monsoon; Equatorial responses to northeasterly cold surges during winter monsoon as inferred from satellite cloud imageries; Short-term planetary scale interactions over the tropics and midlatitudes, Part I: Contrast between active and inactive periods; A simple model of atmosphere-ocean interaction during El Nino; Atmosphere-ocean feedback during El Nino/Southern Oscillation; Short-term climate variability and atmospheric teleconnection from satellite observed outgoing longwave radiation. I: Simultaneous relationships; Short-term climate variability and atmospheric teleconnection from satellite-observed outgoing longwave radiation II: Lagged correlations; A model of atmosphere-ocean coupling in El Nino; Climate variability from cloud fluctuation statistics; Anomalous diabatic heating and large scale circulation during the 1976-77 and the 1982-83 ENSO's; Subseasonal scale oscillation, bimodal climatic state and ENSO; A stochastic-dynamical theory of the long-term variaility of ENSO.
