[climateprediction.net] New study going out to volunteer's machines

Post by BOINC_News »

Indian Ocean experiment
This experiment aims to evaluate the importance of the Indian Ocean Dipole (IOD) event of the winter 2019/2020 on the strong and well predicted North Atlantic Oscillation (NAO) of the same winter. The NAO is of large importance to European winter weather as it governs the winds over the North Atlantic which are related to the mild and wet winters of northern Europe. It has been shown that the NAO is in some years influenced by anomalous tropical ocean conditions (like El Nino). We aim to show that the strong positive IOD of 2019/2020 had an influence on the NAO and resulting warm conditions of this winter. We use the large ensemble of the OpenIFS@Home to identify the connections between the tropical Indian Ocean and the North Atlantic region.

I found this OpenIFS dashboard that has statistics on test and main batches.
