Research Highlight


The atmospheric electrical index for ENSO modoki: Is ENSO modoki one of the factors responsible for the warming trend slowdown?

In this study new atmospheric electrical index (AEI) is proposed taking the difference in the model calculated atmospheric electrical columnar resistance (Rc) which involves planetary boundary layer height (PBLH) and aerosol concentration derived from the satellite measurements. This is the first non-oceanic index capable of differentiating between the conventional and modoki La Niña and El Niño both and may be useful in the future air-sea coupling studies and as a complementary to the oceanic indices.  The  correlation results show that the intensity of El Niño (La Niña) event is almost independent of its duration and the possibility of ENSO modoki being one of the factors responsible for the warming trend slowdown (WTS).
