Understanding the relation between the MJO and tropical cyclogenesis
Figure 1: Average number of storms per pentad focusing on August, September, and October.
Figure 2: Average number of TC’s per MJO Index. Here the MJO is divided into 10 phases using Velocity Potential Anomalies in a Wave 1 pattern.
