An Introduction to Oceanic Kelvin Waves at the NOAA ENSO Blog

We discussed downwelling and upwelling equatorial Kelvin waves in almost every post of 2014/15 El Niño Series.  NOAA recently published a post titled Oceanic Kelvin waves: The next polar vortex*.  The post was written by NOAA’s Michelle L’Heureux and reviewed and edited by NOAA’s Bill Kessler.  It confirms our basic discussions of those phenomena, but describes them in terms that are even more basic. If you have questions for NOAA, that thread at their ENSO blog would be a good place to ask them.
