What is it about?
This is the first study that uses a large rainfall dataset (492 rain gauges) and a 30-year period to provide a comprehensive analysis about the impacts of the MJO on regional and local scales over Northeast Brazil (NEB).
Why is it important?
We discuss the MJO impacts over NEB for all four seasons, providing the magnitude and signs of the rainfall anomalies for each season and MJO phase. The results based on this large number of stations provide a detailed analysis of local impacts of the MJO on precipitation over NEB that are important for water management and decision-making process in areas with water stress.
