[1] The skills of 11 coupled ocean‐atmosphere general circulation models (CGCMs) are investigated in the prediction of seasonal rainfall and circulation anomalies over the northwest (NW) Pacific for the period 1980–2001, with a focus on the summer following the mature phase of El Niño (hereafter JJA(1)). It is shown that the first empirical orthogonal(More)
2 ABSTRACT A seasonal forecast system based on a global, fully coupled ocean-atmosphere general circulation model is used to (i) evaluate the interannual predictability of the Northwest Pacific climate during June-August following El Niño [JJA(1)], and (ii) examine the contribution from the tropical Indian Ocean (TIO) variability. The model retrospective(More)
Slow modulation of interannual variability and its relationship to El Niño/Southern Oscillation (ENSO) is investigated for the period of 1870-2007 using ship-board surface meteorological observations along a frequently travelled track across the North Indian Ocean (NIO; from the Gulf of Eden through Malacca Strait) and the South China Sea (to Luzon Strait).(More)
25 The skills of 11 coupled ocean-atmosphere general circulation models (CGCMs) are 26 investigated in the prediction of seasonal rainfall and circulation anomalies over the Northwest 27 (NW) Pacific for the period 1980-2001, with a focus on the summer following the mature phase 28 of El Niño [hereafter JJA(1)]. It is shown that the first empirical(More)
[1] A suite of satellite and in-situ observations are used to study ocean-atmospheric conditions over the tropical Southwest Indian Ocean (SWIO) during 2006– 2007 when El Nino and an Indian Ocean dipole took place simultaneously. Argo profiles reveal a pronounced up-westward propagation of subsurface warming in the southern tropical Indian Ocean associated(More)
Predictability of summer climate anomalies over East Asia and the northwestern Pacific is investigated using observations and a multimodel hindcast ensemble initialized on 1 May for the recent 20–30 yr. Summertime East Asia is under the influence of the northwestern Pacific subtropical high (PASH). The Pacific–Japan (PJ) teleconnection pattern, a meridional(More)
UNLABELLED Treatment and outcome of Hodgkin lymphoma (HL) are the true success story of modern medicine. The data from the developing countries on long-term outcome of patients with HL is sparse. AIMS Primary objective is to assess the progression-free survival (PFS). Secondary objective are overall survival (OS) and toxicities. SETTINGS AND DESIGN This(More)
