ENSO Modulations by 14.7 day – and 18.6 yr – Lunar cycles,

ENSO Modulations by 14.7  day – and 18.6 yr – Lunar cycles, by Claire Perigaud of Caltech/Jet Propulsion Laboratory

“Using various independent satellite data sets, we find vigorous biweekly reversals of cross-equatorial currents and winds. In the 3 tropical oceans, the Tropical Instability Waves (TIW) extracted from altimetry match the dispersion diagram of a well-organized train of Mixed-Rossby-Gravity Waves with the highest frequency at 14.7 days.” (just part of abstract)
