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 NinoSouthern 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 ENSOs Subseasonal scale oscillation, bimodal climatic state and ENSO A stochastic-dynamical theory of the long-term variaility of ENSO.
