Madden-Julian Oscillation - Bridging Weather and Climate

A paper funded by the Climate Program Office’s MAPP and ESS programs was published in the Bulletin of the American Meteorological Society (BAMS) in December.  The paper - titled "Madden-Julian Oscillation - Bridging  Weather and Climate" - shows that the MJO, which sits in a time frame between weather (less than 10 days) and climate (90 days and longer), can affect both weather and climate and plays a critical role in connecting or bridging the two.
