The Madden-Julian Oscillation (MJO) is the most important mode of tropical intraseasonal variability. The MJO influences precipitation and temperature variability in the tropics, as well as extratropics and high laititudes of both hemispheres. The influential nature of the MJO has also been noted on occurrences of extreme weather events, accuracy of weather forecasts, interactions with El Niño/Southern Oscillation (ENSO), deep ocean variability, distributions of tropical cyclones and hurricanes, tropospheric ozone changes, surface chlorophyll, and phytoplankton variations in tropical oceans and coastal areas. The oscillation exhibits important seasonal changes and pronounced interannual and multi-year variations. This Special Issue invites original research papers dealing with any aspects related to the MJO and its role in weather and climate variability. Review papers are also welcome.
