SEPTEMBER 2004 AMERICAN METEOROLOGICAL SOCIETY | T hough much progress has been made in the development of coupled ocean–atmosphere models, many discrepancies remain between observations and model results. The tropical east Pacific (i.e., east of about 140°W) is a region in which the performance of coupled models has been problematic (Mechoso et al. 1995), with particular difficulty in the simulation of the seasonal cycle of sea surface temperatures (SSTs) and the associated atmospheric… CONTINUE READING
