Is the Indian summer monsoon stable against global change ?

  author={Kirsten Zickfeld and Brigitte Knopf},
[1] The stability of the Indian summer monsoon is investigated by means of a box model of the tropical atmosphere. At the heart of this model is the moistureadvection feedback which allows for the existence of two stable regimes: besides the ‘‘wet’’ summer monsoon, a stable state exists which is characterized by low precipitation. The model is employed for the identification of changes in the qualitative systems behavior in response to changes in boundary conditions. The most notable result is… CONTINUE READING
