Abstract

The possible linear and nonlinear impact of the Maden-Julian Oscillation (MJO) on ENSO are studied. It is found that the former requires estimation of the low frequency tail of the MJO. The observed surface zonal wind stress is decomposed as the sum of different contributions with special emphasis on the intraseasonal MJO and its low frequency tail. The impact of such estimates in a hierarchy of ENSO coupled models is also presented.
