Meteorology of the Indian summer monsoon

Authors(s) and Affiliation(s)



The seasonally varying monsoon circulations associated with the annual heating and cooling of the Asian continent are the most important large-scale aspects of the general circulation of the atmosphere. The Indian summer monsoon affects the lives and the economies of many countries in Asia. The study of this phenomenon has been mainly limited to the Indian subcontinent whereas it takes place over the entire Indian Ocean. The lack of information over the marine region will be removed this year during the first Global Atmospheric Research Programme Global Experiment with the implementation of the Monsoon Experiment (MONEX) observational programme.
