Spatio-temporal Features of Intra-seasonal Oceanic Variability in the Philippine Sea from Mooring Observations and Numerical Simulations
The Philippine Sea is located within the pathway of the propagating Madden–Julian oscillation (MJO) system and is also the destination for the North Pacific mesoscale oceanic eddies and waves. As such, the Philippine Sea is characterized by striking intra-seasonal variability (20–90 days; ISV) that ...

Definition of Extreme El Nino and Its Impact on Projected Increase in Extreme El Nino Frequency
GEOPHYSICAL RESEARCH LETTERS Abstract: During extreme El Nino events, the Intertropical Convergence Zone moves to the normally cold and dry east equatorial Pacific, resulting in a nonlinear rainfall increase with sea su...

The Defining Characteristics of ENSO Extremes and the Strong 2015/2016 El Nino
The year 2015 was special for climate scientists, particularly for the El Nino Southern Oscillation (ENSO) research community, as a major El Nino finally materialized after a long pause since the 1997/1998 extreme El Nin...

Seasonality in Transition Scale from Balanced to Unbalanced Motions in the World Ocean
The transition scale Lt from balanced geostrophic motions to unbalanced wave motions, including near-inertial flows, internal tides, and inertia-gravity wave continuum, is explored using the output from a global 1/48...

Reconstruction of Local Sea Levels at South West Pacific Islands—A Multiple Linear Regression Approach (1988–2014)
Reconstruction of Local Sea Levels at South West Pacific Islands—A Multiple Linear Regression Approach (1988–2014)Rising sea levels are a critical concern in small island nations. The problem is especially serious in the...

Future Changes to El Niño–Southern Oscillation Temperature and Precipitation Teleconnections
Potential changes to the El Niño–Southern Oscillation (ENSO) resulting from climate change may have far reaching impacts through atmospheric teleconnections. Here ENSO temperature and precipitation teleconnections b...

Rainfall change contributes to modulating the Indonesian Throughflow and Indo-Pacific inter-basin exchanges
The Indonesia Seas is the only oceanic pathway that connects tropical ocean basins. It contributes significant inter-basin exchange of heat and freshwater through the well-known Indonesia Throughflow (ITF, Figure 1). The...
