An Investigation of the Onsets of the 1999 and 2000 Monsoons in Central Nepal

  title={An Investigation of the Onsets of the 1999 and 2000 Monsoons in Central Nepal},
  author={Timothy J. Lang and Ana P. Barros},
The Marsyandi River basin in the central Nepalese Himalayas is a topographically complex region, with strong spatial gradients of precipitation over various timescales. A meteorological network consisting of 20 stations was installed at a variety of elevations (528–4435 m) in this region, and measurements of rainfall were made during the 1999 and 2000 summer monsoons. The onsets of the 1999 and 2000 monsoons in central Nepal were examined at different spatial scales by using a combination of… CONTINUE READING
