On the Madden – Julian Oscillation – Atlantic Hurricane Relationship

  title={On the Madden – Julian Oscillation – Atlantic Hurricane Relationship},
  author={Philip Klotzbach},
The large-scale equatorial circulation known as the Madden–Julian oscillation (MJO) has been shown to impact tropical cyclone activity in several basins around the globe. In this paper, the author utilizes an MJO index created by Wheeler and Hendon to examine its impacts on tropical genesis and intensification in the Atlantic. Large differences in frequency and intensity of tropical cyclone activity are seen, both in the tropical Atlantic as well as in the northwest Caribbean and Gulf of Mexico… CONTINUE READING
