ABOUT THE VIDEO The graphics in this video are based on simulations run with the Weather Research and Forecasting (WRF) model with inputs from the ERA-Interim Reanalysis and the Real-time Global Sea Surface Temperature analysis for the period December 2008 - February 2009. These models and datasources are widely used for weather and climate studies. For more information on the methods used, this journal article provides the details: https://journals.ametsoc.org/doi/full...

ABOUT THE MJO The Madden-Julian Oscillation impacts on daily weather patterns in the Maritime Continent in ways that are still being understood. This kind of modelling helps us understand weather activity on a regional scale, and feeds in to global climate modelling activities as well. For more information about this research, click here.

ABOUT THE SCIENTISTS This video was produced by the NCI VizLab, in association with Dr Claire Vincent and A/Prof Todd Lane from the University of Melbourne and the ARC Centre of Excellence for Climate System Science. Compute resources on the NCI supercomputer were used to run the models. See more at: https://geonetwork.nci.org.au/geonetw...
