1. When decomposing the flow field into different normal modes do you use the Eigen modes derived for a resting basic state or do you derive the modes using a realistic basic states? And do these modes sum up to the total flow field?2. Is there any exchange of energy between Rossby waves and Kelvin/IG wave components or are they completely independent modes?
Darren Ray
Have you repeated the decomposition and the extra-tropical response for the SH?
Yuan-Ming Cheng
How do you interpret the Kelvin/IG and Rossby components in the extra tropics? Are they still the Matusno modes?
Could the difference between pre and post 2000 MJO characteristics be attributed to improvement of reanalysis data and not climate change particularly?
