M. J. McPhaden and G. R. Foltz Intraseasonal variations in the surface layer heat balance of the central equatorial Indian Ocean: The importance of zonal advection and vertical mixing Geophysical Research Letters 40

Version of Record online: 6 JUN 2013 | DOI: 10.1002/grl.50536

Key Points

  • Two MJO events forced an SST decrease that was in part due to reduced heat flux
  • For one MJO zonal advection contributed substantial cooling
  • For other event lack of barrier layer enabled pronounced entrainment
