The Tropical Subseasonal Variability Simulated in the NASA GISS General Circulation Model

  title={The Tropical Subseasonal Variability Simulated in the NASA GISS General Circulation Model},
  author={Yonghua Chen and -‐‐ Sung Yao},
The tropical subseasonal variability simulated by the Goddard Institute for Space Studies general circulation model, Model E2, is examined. Several versions of Model E2 were developed with changes to the convective parameterization in order to improve the simulation of the Madden–Julian oscillation (MJO). When the convective scheme is modified to have a greater fractional entrainment rate, Model E2 is able to simulate MJO-like disturbances with proper spatial and temporal scales. Increasing the… CONTINUE READING
