MJO Experimental Prediction Project:
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.
- Satellite pictures
- MJO Phase diagram of
(from Matt Wheeler).
Shows the current value of the phase diagram of EOF1 versus EOF2. The EOF's were calculated by using the combined daily fields of 15?S-15?N averaged OLR, 850 hPa zonal wind, and 200 hPa zonal wind from 1979 to 2001. The interpretation of EOF1 and EOF2 is available pictorially.
