Abstract : The goal of this research is to contribute to the understanding of atmospheric predictability on intraseasonal and longer time scales. This involves understanding the nature and source of the predictability in the oceans and the physical processes by which that predictable signal is ultimately realized and coupled into the atmosphere. A better understanding of air-sea interactions is critical to this goal because most of the modes of variability (the diurnal cycle, Madden-Julian Oscillations - MJO, Monsoons, ENSO, upwelling) are fundamentally dependent on air-sea interaction processes.
