Linear Inverse Modeling Tropical OLR, Wind, and SST Anomalies Pentads 1-6 Forecasts

NEWC-LIM VERSION 2.0: Now with 1) 200 and 850 mb winds (including vertical shear), 2) 5-day running means, 3) finer (2 degree) latitude resolution.

C-LIM forecasts of 200-850 mb wind shear, totals (left) and anomalies (right). Note that the initialization anomaly (Pentad 0) is shown in the EOF space of the model. Wind shear vectors are scaled by the reference vector (m/s) shown on each plot.
