Today's selection from the Gallery
The influence of El Nino Southern Oscillation (ENSO) on the life time of the MJO. Correlation maps between the life time of the MJO and gridded sea surface temperature (SST) show that the MJO life time is shorter during El Nino (32 days during El Nino, and 48 days during La Nina).
