Simple models of ENSO

Master Thesis subject (30 ECTS)

The El Nino Southern Oscillation is the dominant mode of variability in the modern climate. It is driven by a feedback between the tropical atmosphere and ocean in the Pacific, but its effects are felt in virtually the whole globe. Quite remarkably, much of the variability in this apparently complex phenomenon can be reproduced by linear models of very low order. This project involves searching for the minimal basis that needs to be included in the models to be able to predict ENSO.
