ENSO AND ITS TELECONNECTIONS
ENSO is the largest source of predictability in the climate system with wide-reaching impacts on weather and climate throughout the globe. Our research has investigated asymmetries in ENSO predictability due to re-charged states and the use of a conditional skill mask for seasonal prediction over North America.
THE IMPACT OF THE EXTRATROPICS ON ENSO DIVERSITY AND PREDICTABILITY
Several mechanisms originating in the Northern and Southern Hemisphere extratropics have been identified as able to stochastically force ENSO events. Our research is investigating the impact of these extratropical mechanisms on ENSO diversity and predictability holistically.
