profiles from hull-mounted Doppler sonar; water column optical profiles to determine the penetrating solar radiation, a key contributor to air–sea heat exchanges; sea surface (skin) temperature from infrared radiometers; near-surface ocean temperature and salinity profiles from ~0.05- to 7-m depth from a towed surface thermistor (SeaSnake) and fixed subsurface array (CT chain); and continuous profiling (150–200 casts per day) of upper-ocean temperature; salinity; microscale shear; and subsurface

fluctuations in SST ( Vialard et al. 2008 ) can be generated through complex processes over the thermocline ridge region. Their feedback to the MJO is expected but unsubstantiated ( Duvel and Vialard 2007 ). Intraseasonal surface westerlies enhance the Wyrtki jets and their eastward transport of heat and salinity ( Han et al. 2004 ). Their roles in the SST feedback to the MJO are completely unknown. These hypotheses were proposed to be tested using field observations. Many other possible mechanisms for MJO
