Tutorials and Monitoring

An All-season Real-time Multivariate MJO Index Forecast and monitoring plots of the MJO that utilize and empirically derived structure of the MJO based on historic data and include predictions for Australia.
What is the MJO, and why do we care? A short tutrial on the MJO from the Climate.gov ENSO blog.
Multi-Scale MJO Research PageThe Iowa State Tropical Atmospheric Dynamics Group researches the MJO and how it interactives with waves and the mean state of the atmosphere/ocean.
Adrian Matthews MJO page A very complete page with MJO description, current research topics, illustrations and animations from Adrian Matthews at the University of East Anglia.
MJO monitoring page From NOAA/CPC. Includes various plots of the current status of the 30-60 day oscillation including OLR anomalies, geopotential height and other animations and satellite photos. Also includes a very nice FAQ on the oscillation mechanism and evolution and it's relationship to other climate processes. They also have a MJO daily index.
