Short summary
Atmosphere-ocean interactions are best isolated in models rather than observations, but state-of-the-art models are expensive and often simulate these interactions poorly. We present a less expensive modelling framework that resolves air-sea interactions well, and permits a more rigorous identification of these interactions' effects than previously possible. In our model, air-sea interactions improve tropical rainfall variations but have limited effects on midlatitude jet streams.
