Local rainfall over north Queensland response to the Madden Julian Oscillation using AUS2200 simulations
Every catastrophic rainfall event has a unique footprint, in terms of the spatial and temporal spread of the inundation. This footprint reflects both large-scale influences such as the Madden Julian Oscillation (MJO) and highly localised influences such as the orientation of the rain-bearing flow relative to topography. This study uses high-resolution simulations (AUS2200) to examine how mesoscale processes modulate the response of precipitation to the MJO in coastal areas of Northeast Australia.
