An observational and theoretical study of the structure and propagation of the Madden-Julian Oscillation
This study is compososed of two parts. In the first part of this dissertation, the large-scale circulation features that determine the structure and evolution of MJO- related moisture and precipitation fields are examined using a linear analysis protocol based on daily 850- minus 150-hPa global velocity potential data. The ...
The global scale structure of the MJO
Thee global scale structure of the MJO is analyzed using the globally gridded ERA-Interim dataset (1979-2011). The study is separated into two parts: Part I of this study concentrates on how the tropical wind field evolves during a composite event. The wind field over the tropics (30° S - 30° N) is partitioned into three ...
