AB - <p>Using a global spectral model with wave-CISK formulation we have generated an eastward de which. Resembles the observed 30-50 day mode. This has a scale of global wave number one and two years structure in the vertical. It has the structure of a composite of Kelvin and Rossby waves. This composite system moves eastwards.</p><p>We have also studied a linear two-level analytical model to understand the nonlinear spectral model response. In the linear as well as in the nonlinear spectral model, as we Increase the moisture availability factor the speeds of the waves decrease. In the linear model this speed is found to be independent of drag for all types of waves. In the nonlinear spectral model for a given drag there is a critical value of the moisture availability factor for which the wave becomes stationary and beyond which even shows westward propagation. Thus both moisture availability and nonlinearity appear to contribute to the slow eastward speed of the equatorial 30-50 day mode.</p><p> </p>
