Upper-level inverted troughs (IVs) associated with midlatitude breaking Rossby waves or tropical uppertroposphere troughs (TUTTs) have been identified as important contributors to the variability of rainfall in the North American monsoon (NAM) region. However, little attention has been given to the dynamics of these systems owing to the sparse observational network over the NAM region. High temporal and spatial observations taken during the 2004 North American Monsoon Experiment (NAME) are… CONTINUE READING
