[1] Effects of the seasonal cycles of atmospheric surface forcings on the development and termination of the Indian Ocean Zonal Dipole Mode (IOZDM) are studied using a nonlinear, 4-1/2 layer ocean model partially coupled to an advective atmospheric mixed layer model in which sea surface temperature (SST) feeds back only to air temperature and specific humidity. A series of experiments are performed for the period of 1984–1998 to isolate processes. The results indicate the seasonal cycle of… CONTINUE READING
