Plain Language Summary: The Madden-Julian Oscillation (MJO) significantly influences the global and local climate and its simulation largely attributed to the convection scheme in Atmospheric General Circulation Models (AGCMs). By incorporating the Stochastic Multicloud Model into the ECHAM6.3 atmosphere model, the simulated eastward propagation of the MJO is improved through adjusting the shallowdeep convective trigger.
