The Madden Julian Oscillation (MJO) is a planetary scale weather disturbance that causes a region of enhanced rainfall that propagates slowly eastward from the equatorial Indian Ocean to just east of the International Date Line. When active, the MJO causes global wind perturbations, modulates tropical cyclone activity in every basin, and affects the onsets of Asian and Australian monsoons. A novel Lagrangian atmospheric model suggests that the MJO will continue to intensify as the oceans warm over the next century, with potentially significant impacts on wind patterns in the tropics, locations of monsoon depression formation, and possibly the El Nino Southern Oscillation as well. 4 p.m. in Workman 101.

Dr. Roger Wiens of Los Alamos National Laboratory will present this week's NRAO/NM Colloquium. His talk is titled "Exploring Mars With Curiosity." Since 2012 the 1-ton Curiosity rover, with its 10 instruments, has been exploring Gale crater near Mars' equator. Shortly after landing, the rover team discovered evidence of an ancient streambed. Upon further exploration we now understand that Gale crater was once a large, habitable lake. During the rover's 9-km traverse we have observed periodic releases of methane from an unknown source and we have sought to understand evidence for highly variable levels of paleo-groundwater oxidation. Wiens will preface the talk with a few words about determining the solar isotopic composition with the Genesis mission, and the window it gives us into the evolution of the solar nebula. 11 a.m. in the auditorium of the Domenici Science Operations Center (NRAO).
