  abstract = {{The El Nino/southern oscillation (ENSO) is the most prominent
interannual fluctuation in the atmosphere-oceanic system. A single index
SOI (Southern Oscillation Index), based on the sea level pressure
difference between Tahiti and Darvin, is conventionally used to describe
the ENSO phenomenon. Its linkage to other geophysical phenomena is being
studied now. The paper studies the correlation of SOI with the latitude
residuals by means of cross correlation in using the latitude
observational data of the six astrometric instruments at Mizusawa and
Tokyo: the Zenith Telescope (1900-1978), the Photographic Zenith Tube
No. 1 and No. 2 (1962-1975; 1975-1992), the Floating Zenith
Telescope(1967-1984) and the astrolabe (1966-1984) at Mizusawa; the
Photographic Zenith Tube at Tokyo (1966-1988). It appears that the
latitude residuals at Mizusawa and Tokyo have a significant correlation
at interannual time scale with the SOI, the SOI leading latitude
residual of about 2-3years.

  title = {{Baroclinic Wave Transitions in the Martian Atmosphere}},
  journal = {\icarus},

  abstract = {{Surface pressure data from the Viking Lander mission and from GCM
simulations of the martian atmosphere have been analyzed using singular
systems analysis. Very regular oscillations are found with frequencies
that are distributed bimodally with peaks corresponding to periods of
approximately 2-4 days and 5-7 days, respectively. Reconstructions of
the amplitudes of the two oscillations are often negatively correlated;
i.e., when the amplitude of one oscillation is large, that of the other
is small. The GCM simulations show that the negative correlation in the
amplitudes of the two oscillations can be explained as a flipping
between two different wavenumber modes. In the absence of diurnal
forcing in the model, transition from an unrealistically regular high
frequency mode to a similarly unrealistic regular low frequency mode
occurs at most once during the northern winter season. The diurnal cycle
in the model, however, acts in a non-linear sense to stimulate the
transitions between the two wavenumbers and thus increases the frequency
of mode flipping events. The corresponding simulations bear a closer
resemblance to the observations.
