Effects of Orography and Surface Heat Fluxes on the South Asian Summer Monsoon

  title={Effects of Orography and Surface Heat Fluxes on the South Asian Summer Monsoon},
  author={Ma Ding},
A high-resolution (40 km horizontal) global model is used to examine controls on the South Asian summer monsoon by orography and surface heat fluxes. In a series of integrations with altered topography and reduced surface heat fluxes, monsoon strength, as indicated by a vertical wind shear index, is highly correlated with the amplitude of the maximum boundary layer equivalent potential temperature (ueb) over South Asia. Removal of the Tibetan Plateauwhile preserving theHimalayas and… CONTINUE READING
