Linear Inverse Modeling Tropical OLR and SST Anomalies Months 2-9 ForecastsC-LIM VERSION 3.2beta: Interim update. Resolution improved to 2x2 degree, replaced NCEP R1 winds with CFSR winds, and updates one day sooner. STILL IN BETA; SOME PARTS INCOMPLETE.
C-LIM forecasts of OLR/200 mb wind (left, with contour interval 5 W/m2) and SST/Z20/850 mb wind (right, with contour interval 0.2oC) anomalies. Projected OLR (left) and SST (right) skill, measured as pattern correlation of Tropics-wide observed and forecast anomalies, is indicated above each panel. Note that months are defined as 35-day averages (i.e., seven consecutive pentads).
