Multiscale theories for the MJO

Abstract

In the equatorial troposphere, the Madden-Julian Oscillation (MJO) is a planetaryscale wave envelope of complex multiscale convection (see Figure 17.1 for a schematic illustration). It begins as a standing wave in the Indian Ocean and propagates eastward across the western Pacific Ocean at a speed of ≈ 5 m/s.
