SALLJEX project description

South American Low-Level Jet Experiment

Summary

The South American Low-Level Jet Experiment (SALLJEX), a component of the CLIVAR/VAMOS program, is an internationally coordinated effort in order to contribute to the understanding of the role of the South American Low-Level Jet in moisture and energy exchange between the tropics and extratropics and related aspects of regional hydrology, climate and climate variability.

Objectives:

The goals are to improve short and long term prediction by obtaining an improved temporal and spatial structure description of the low-level jet, evaluate the veracity of numerical representation of the low-level jet, and determine improvements of the initial state representation and model parameterizations required to improve prediction .
