Joint Seminar: Tropical Climate Variability: Interactions across the Pacific, Indian, and Atlantic Oceans

Complex interactions manifest between modes of tropical climate variability across the Pacific, Indian, and Atlantic Oceans. Interactions between these modes can alter their strength, periodicity, seasonality, and ultimately their predictability. In a series of partially decoupled experiments using a coupled climate model, we have explored the relative influences between the El Niño-Southern Oscillation, the Indian Ocean basinwide and dipole modes, and the Atlantic equatorial mode. I will describe these results, in addition to another set of experiments with a blocked Indonesian Throughflow.
