CLICCS will explore climate change with broad expertise. CLICCS will investigate how the climate changes and how society changes with it, thereby feeding back on climate. Understanding these changes, including
MODES applies three-dimensional linear wave theory for the decomposition of global circulation in terms of normal-mode functions (NMFs). NMFs used by MODES are eigensolutions of the linearized primitive
Kelvin waves are the n=0 eastward-propagating inertia-gravity mode on the sphere.
Kelvin wave is the slowest eastward-propagating eigensolution of the linearized primitive equations on the sphere, associated
The n=1 Rossby wave is the fastest Rossby mode on the sphere.
The n=1 Rossby wave, together with the Kelvin wave, provides basic understanding of large-scale circulation in response to tropical heating
