using an atmospheric general circulation model (AGCM) in an aquaplanet setting, which is forced by the prescribed MJO-like moving SST. However, this AGCM poorly simulated the MJO and could not resolve the complex orography and land–sea contrast in the MC because of a very coarse model resolution. Takasuka et al. (2015) conduct high-resolution model simulations with and without flat land in the MC and suggest that the land–ocean zonal contrast of latent heat flux is the major reason for the slower

possible hidden mechanisms using the in situ observations obtained during the Pre-YMC campaign and numerical approaches. Fig . 1. Map of the Sumatra region and model domains together with the line of the cross section and the masked areas for the area averaging of the “land” and “sea.” The two white dots represent the locations of Bengkulu and R/V Mirai . This paper is organized as follows. Section 2 includes descriptions of the data sources and model settings. Section 3 documents the

studies to be responsible for the barrier effect of the MC, including topographic effects, land surface processes, local diurnal convection cycles, and regional- and large-scale mean moisture distributions around the MC. However, as indicated by Jiang et al. (2020) , current GCMs suffer from poor representation of the behavior of the MJO as it propagates over the MC, indicating that the basic physical process of the MC barrier effect on MJO events is still poorly understood. The stationary

0400 and 0700 LST. Propagation behavior was explained in terms of the land–sea breeze. Hassim et al. (2016) and Vincent and Lane (2016a) examined the diurnal cycle of precipitation around New Guinea using the Weather Research and Forecasting (WRF) Model and satellite precipitation radar data. They found that precipitation associated with convective clouds propagated offshore at two distinct speeds. Within 100–200 km of the coast, precipitation propagated at with density currents associated

significant topography, mountains also form an integral part of the land and sea interaction. The rainfall peaks over coastal regions tend to show a maximum over the mountains in the early afternoon, followed by another maximum at the mountain foot early in the evening that then migrates offshore in the night. It has been reported and discussed extensively in the literature using both models and observations. See for example, Houze et al. (1981) , Yang and Slingo (2001) , Neale and Slingo (2003

using either the same model ( Hassim et al. 2016 ; Vincent and Lane 2017 ) or different ones ( Love et al. 2011 ; Birch et al. 2016 ; Im and Elthair 2018 ). Increasing resolution has a positive effect on DP experiments by reducing the wet bias both over land and water, but the other two experiments (SH and EX) seem to worsen at higher resolution over land and show only some improvement over the ocean. For example, EX runs deviate from the observations average over land between 44% (32 km) and 75

resolution of 0.25° × 0.25° is used to identify individual MJO events in the observation. Other variables covering the same period are three-dimensional wind fields, air temperature, specific humidity (0.75° × 0.75°) provided by European Centre for Medium-Range Weather Forecasts interim reanalysis (ERA-I) ( Dee et al. 2011 ) and NOAA Optimum Interpolation (OI) High Resolution Sea Surface Temperature, version 2 (OISSTv2; Reynolds et al. 2007 ), with a horizontal resolution of 0.25° × 0.25° provided by

study is that the relation between the cloud microphysics of ice particles aloft and surface rainfall depends systematically on the environmental conditions. This may introduce a potential bias in rainfall estimates between the PR and TMI products, particularly over land. Although a number of studies have used TRMM data to measure precipitation over the study area, particularly related to the variation of diurnal cycles ( Mori et al. 2004 ; Ichikawa and Yasunari 2006 ), very few studies have

precipitation variability on the MJO time scale ( Chen et al. 1995 ). In addition, Waliser et al. (2009) used satellite data to show that increasing (decreasing) precipitation is maintained by the preceding moisture flux convergence (divergence) on MJO time scales and that the contribution of evaporation to precipitation is relatively small. Tropical rain forests represent a major source of global and regional hydrologic fluxes ( Aragão 2012 ), and evapotranspiration over land might also play a major role
