                         interannual variability of sea surface temperature and wind stress 
                         over the tropical Atlantic. The coupled model is composed of a 
                         statistical atmospheric component model that uses sea surface 
                         temperature anomalies (SSTA) over the tropical oceans to forecast 
                         wind stress anomalies over the tropical Atlantic, coupled to a 
                         general circulation model of the ocean configured over the 
                         Atlantic. It is shown that, while the Atlantic-only hybrid coupled 
                         model has damped oscillations of SSTA and wind stress, the 
                         inclusion of Pacific SSTA variability in the coupled model 
                         resulted in sustained oscillations of wind stress and SSTA over 
                         the equatorial Atlantic.",
