Simulation of the Madden – Julian Oscillation in a Coupled General Circulation Model . Part II : The Role of the Basic State

Abstract

In Part I of this study it was shown that air–sea coupling had a positive impact on some aspects of the simulation of the Madden–Julian oscillation (MJO) by a GCM. However, errors in the basic-state climate of that GCM appeared to be preventing the MJO-related convection from propagating into the west Pacific. In this paper, the actual impact of these… (More)
