-scale interactions within the MJO. By permitting the direct representation of cloud formation, the environments within which clouds form can be analyzed according to the governing physics of the atmosphere, rather than via convective parameterizations as is typically the case in global circulation models ( Zhang and Mu 2005 ; Jiang et al. 2015 ; Moncrieff et al. 2012 ). We therefore simulate a boreal summer MJO event propagating over the Maritime Continent using a CRM to investigate whether any relationships

Fig. 6 , which are for the rainfall systems of (top) Borneo, (middle) Karimata Strait, and (bottom) Sumatra. Rainfall is plotted according to the right ordinate (mm h −1 ). These patterns suggest a gravity wave mode that is coupled to and excited by the synchronized, vigorous nocturnal convective systems over Sumatra and Borneo ( Figs. 6 and 8 ). This gravity mode hence assumes a zonal wavelength of ~1500 km, roughly matching the spacing between these two systems. Despite the slower phase speed
