Characteristics of Summer Convective Systems Initiated over the Tibetan Plateau . Part I : Origin , Track , Development , and Precipitation

  title={Characteristics of Summer Convective Systems Initiated over the Tibetan Plateau . Part I : Origin , Track , Development , and Precipitation},
  author={LI YAODONG and Wang De Yun},
Summer convective systems (CSs) initiated over the Tibetan Plateau identified by the International Satellite Cloud Climatology Project (ISCCP) deep convection database and associated Tropical Rainfall Measuring Mission (TRMM) precipitation for 1998–2001 have been analyzed for their basic characteristics in terms of initiation, distribution, trajectory, development, life cycle, convective intensity, and precipitation. Summer convective systems have a dominant center over the Hengduan Mountain… CONTINUE READING
