For Yaas?What implications if any will the upcoming BOB cyclone have on any potential -IOD?
They are all SSTA indexes for certain regions of the Pacific, at least on a basic level.Is anyone able to explain the difference between the Interdecadal Pacific Oscillation (IPO), Pacific Decadal Oscillation (PDO) and ENSO cycles? I'm also interested to know how these long-term IPO/PDO trends work compared to short-term ENSO. I would have thought if there was a warming or cooling trend in the Pacific over decades that would translate to more or less corresponding warm or cool ENSO events during that time, but ENSO events appear to have the same regularity regardless. This article makes some interesting points, but doesn't really explain any of these questions:
Very interesting, thanks for the link!If I'm reading it correctly from the source proving the chart below https://www.esr.org/research/oscar/equatorial-pacific-conditions/
....the boy-child's moment may have already gone
An interesting effort at enso prediction - I think it's saying a double dip nina, at least a bit on the cooler side than neutral coming up...but check out the link and decide fr yourself...
