Spectral Weather

SpectralWeather facilitates understanding of the nature of tropical weather and climate phenomena and air-sea interactions including forecasting of extreme precipitation, monsoon onset, and storm tracks.

Extending Cameron Beccario's earth.nullschool.net project SpectralWeather focuses on spectral decomposition of meteorological and oceanic fields into equatorial waves – Convectively Coupled Kelvin Waves, Madden-Julian Oscillation, Equatorial Rossby waves and Mixed Rossby-Gravity waves.

SpectralWeather uses ECMWF ERA5 data, NASA GPM rainfall, OMI OLR index, NEMO SST, AVISO sea surface height, and OSCAR currents. SpectralWeather is developed jointly by:
