[1] An investigation linking the large-scale intraseasonal variability in low-level wind regimes and mesoscale convective activity in tropical South America (TSA) is presented. Observational evidence is gathered to support the hypothesis that periods of active and break phases in the South American Monsoon System (SAMS) are directly related to persistent westerly and easterly intraseasonal low-level wind-regime anomalies (10–70 days). The large-scale circulation and tropical convection features… CONTINUE READING
