Abstract:

The Madden Julian Oscillation MJO influences the intraseasonal variability in the tropics. It is essential to understand factors that contribute to the model forecast errors associated with the extended prediction of the MJO. The long-term goals of this research are to identify the physical processes that affect the extended range prediction of the MJO and shed light on future improvements in the model parameterizations and ensemble forecast strategies that aim to increase the seasonal prediction skill of the NAVY models.
