Heating and Moistening of the MJO during DYNAMO in ECMWF Reforecasts

The Madden-Julian oscillation (MJO), the dominant mode of tropical intraseasonal variability, has profound impacts on a wide range of weather and climate phenomena in the tropics and extratropics. Despite decades of intensive studies, our understanding of its physical mechanisms has remained controversial. While most previous work has focused on processes associated with the MJO itself, comparing the MJO and other types of tropical convection might provide valuable insights into understanding the MJO.
