[Lin & Qian 2019] offers partial Lunar Tidal Forcing as a refinement to previous models, as they take pains to explain. The eastward subsurface wave and its "likely" tidal coupling is just part of the total ENSO cycle and basket of effects, like winds and distant climate signals. They make no stronger claim than improving on current predictive models. They don't account for asynchronous excitation. This is all fully consistent with our consensus here, that there must be some tidal forcing in the complex mix of ENSO effects. There is still the fundamental Hemholtz resonances as partial non-lunar forcings. Its not just straightforward tidal forcing, like a boat docked in a tide. The ENSO Elephant is not yet fully grasped.
