DYNAMO begins!

We'll get back soon to the long-winded exposition of what the MJO is shortly. But we interrupt it now to announce that the DYNAMO field program, which will study the onset of MJO events in the Indian ocean and which is the excuse for this blog, has begun. The Intensive Observing Period may not have quite officially started, but a lot of the instruments are in place and operating, and more are coming online rapidly.
We hope to have some posts from the field soon, but for now we'll just link to some press releases. One from Lamont (Columbia University) is here, and one from NSF is here.
