Abstract

In the last two decades, many studies have been devoted to developing a theoretical understanding of the tropical intraseasonal oscillation (TISO) in order to improve the models and their predictions of these disturbances. Progress in modeling and predicting the ISO will only happen if the mechanisms underlying its complex interactions and fundamental dynamics are more fully understood. Significant progress in theoretical understanding has been achieved, although some aspects of the theories remain disputable and incomplete.
