MJO (Madden Julian Oscillation)
Current MJO status
The purpose of this page is to provide ways to assess and
view the current MJO status. In addition to the types of plots
here, we hope to provide as assessment of the current status of the
various model's MJO's. This could be done using EOF's of the models
or similar techniques.
Infrared global composite (sample shown)
NOAA CPC’s 200 mb velocity potential:
||Displays a 5-day running mean of 200mb velocity potential averaged from 5N to 5S. Events can seen to be traveling west to east, generally speaking.
NOAA CPC’s Animation of daily IR and 200-hPa velocity potential anomalies:
||Animation of daily IR and 200-hPa velocity potential anomalies (base period 1971-2000). Velocity potential anomalies are proportional to divergence with green (brown) contours corresponding to regions in which convection tends to be enhanced (suppressed).
