The seasonal relationship between intraseasonal tropical variability and ENSO in CMIP5

Tatiana Matveeva, Daria Gushchina, and Boris Dewitte

Data sets

CMIP mode data LLNL

Short summary
Predicting El Niño both in current condition and for the next century is a key societal need. Intraseasonal atmosphere variability (ITV) plays an important role in triggering of El Niño; the El Niño/ITV relationship may change in future climate. The purpose of this study is to select the models that are most skilful in simulation of the ITV/El Niño relationship and thus promising for investigation of the El Niño mechanism under global climate change. Five models of CMIP5 project were selected.
