Research Highlight


Evaluation of NCEP TIGGE short-range forecast for Indian summer monsoon intraseasonal oscillation

This study focuses on the short-range prediction of Monsoon Intraseasonal Oscillations (MISOs) using the Nat ional Centers for Environmental Prediction(NCEP) Ensemble Prediction System (EPS) data from The Observing System Research and Predictability Experiment (THORPEX) Interactive Grand Global Ensemble (TIGGE) archive.
