This figure appears in chapter 2 of the Our Changing Planet: The U.S. Global Change Research Program for Fiscal Year 2015 report.
The NASA GEOS5 model has made significant progress in simulating the MJO, demonstrated by how closely its output (right panel) visually resembles satellite observation data (left panel; in both panels, MJO events are represented as lines of green, red, and purple sloping from top left to bottom right). Although continued model improvements are necessary, this effort constitutes a substantial leap in near-term climate modeling capability. (Credit: S. Tulich, NOAA)
