Abstract

The mean low-level wind field shows remarkable orographic and thermal influences of the Tibetan Plateau on the onset of the summer monsoon circulation. The inflow towards the eastern Plateau with a marked diurnal change in its intensity is the most prominent feature of the wind field. The areas of organized precipitation are well related to synoptic systems seen in the 850 mb flow (the quasi-stationary Burma-India through, the disturbances forming on the through, the confluence zone along the polar (baiu) front, and the "tranverse trough" extending eastward from the Plateau). (JPB).
