Short summary
Large-scale weather patterns such as the North Atlantic Oscillation, which dictates the harshness of European winters, vary over the course of years. By recreating it in a simple ocean-atmosphere model, we hope to understand what drives this slow, hard-to-predict variability. MAOOAM is such a model, in which the resolution and included physical processes can easily be modified. The modular system allowed us to show the robustness of the slow variability against changes in model resolution.
