Today's selection from the Gallery
Rainfall rate during the Madden-Julian Oscillation (MJO) at individual stations along the Fly River, Papua New Guinea. The strong cycle shows that the MJO is felt right down at the local level, and useful rainfall predictions based on the MJO can be made. The station data (thin lines) shows a much stronger signal than satellite-derived TRMM rainfall data (thick lines)
