Abstract Westerly wind bursts (WWBs) in the equatorial Pacific are known to play a significant role in the development of El Nino events. They have typically been treated as a purely stochastic external forcing of ENSO. Recent observations, however, show that WWB characteristics depend upon the large-scale SST field. The consequences of such a WWB modulation by SST are examined using an ocean general circulation model coupled to a statistical atmosphere model (i.e., a hybrid coupled model). An… CONTINUE READING
