JAMSTEC's Model Participation in APCC MME ENSO Prediction

 The APEC Climate Center (APCC) started to provide the Multi-Model Ensemble (MME) El Niño–Southern Oscillation (ENSO) prediction information produced with the climate informaiton of SINTEX-F (Scale Interaction Experiment-Frontier Research Center for Global Change). SINTEX-F is a Atmosphere-Ocean Coupled Model of the Japan Agency for Marine-Earth Science and Technology (JAMSTEC). 


El Niño–Southern Oscillation (ENSO) is an irregularly periodic variation in winds and sea surface temperatures over the tropical eastern Pacific Ocean, affecting the climate of much of the tropics and subtropics. The warming phase of the sea temperature is known as El Niño and the cooling phase as La Niña.


APCC has made constant efforts to attract domestic and international climate models to its MME prediction to increase the reliability of its climate prediction information. The more information from highly reliable climate models is reflected, the higher the reliability of the MME climate information tends to go.


APCC had kept communicating with JAMSTEC on the participation of JAMSTEC’s model in its MME prediction since 2019 International Workshop on Climate Prediction, held in June 2019, Taiwan. JAMSTEC finally decided to periodically offer the climate information of SINTEX-F to APCC’s MME ENSO prediction.
