Title: Initiation of the Madden-Julian Oscillation

Many storms around the world have roots in the Indian Ocean, where they are churned up by the atmospheric process called the Madden-Julian Oscillation (MJO). PNNL is working to unlock the secrets of the MJO, particularly how it initiates in the Indian Ocean every 30-60 days. Better prediction of the MJO will help resource managers, weather forecasters and people worldwide better prepare for its effects.
