A fast Kelvin wave triggered by the MJO. Sea level pressure map during a particular phase of the MJO, as simulated by the UK Met Office climate model. The shaded region over the equatorial eastern Pacific shows an equatorial Kelvin wave that has been triggered by convective heating over the Indian Ocean and rapidly propagated eastward. It has been partially blocked by the Andes mountain range and has developed some southward propagation as a coastally trapped wave.
