Amplified Madden–Julian oscillation impacts in the Pacific–North America region


Nature Climate Change, Published online: 29 June 2020; doi:10.1038/s41558-020-0814-0

The Madden–Julian oscillation (MJO) is a band of convection that travels eastward through the tropics and impacts mid-latitude weather via teleconnections. Under climate warming, these teleconnections are predicted to extend eastward in the Pacific–North America region, amplifying MJO impacts there.
