Title Coupled Ocean-Atmosphere Dynamics and Predictability of MJO's.
Publication Date Sep 2012
Media Count 17p
Personal Author A. J. Miller D. Waliser
Abstract Our long-term goal is to develop a coupled ocean-atmosphere model that has significant and quantified skill in predicting the evolution of Madden- Julian Oscillations (MJO s), which is highly relevant to ONR long-term objectives. This requires developing a better understanding of the sensitivities of the atmospheric circulation associated with MJO s to small-scale SST anomalies, regional-scale SST anomalies, the diurnal cycle, surface waves, upper-ocean mixing, and various other aspects of ocean-atmosphere feedbacks. The objectives and immediate scientific goals of the proposed research are: (1) Develop and test the Scripps Coupled Ocean-Atmosphere Regional (SCOAR) model for MJO predictability and feedback process studies; (2) Develop and test a WRF-ROMS regional coupled model (SCOAR2) for MJO predictability and feedback process studies; (3) Test the NCAR CCSM coupled model for MJO predictability and in feedback process studies.
