Devastating floods in northeast Pakistan and northern India occurred in July 2010 and September 2014 as a consequence of extreme precipitation events. The 2010 and 2014 flood events had similar synoptic flow patterns that led to an anomalously high moisture content in the flood region. The quasi-geostrophic omega equation is inverted in order to attribute components of the large-scale vertical motion profile to synoptic forcing, diabatic heating, and mechanically forced orographic ascent.

Forcings and feedbacks on convection in the 2010 Pakistan flood: Modeling extreme precipitation with interactive large‐scale ascent
Extratropical extreme precipitation events are usually associated with large‐scale flow disturbances, strong ascent, and large latent heat release. The causal relationships between these factors are
Climatological Characteristics of Heavy Rainfall in Northern Pakistan and Atmospheric Blocking over Western Russia
AbstractPakistan and northwestern India have frequently experienced severe heavy rainfall events during the boreal summer over the last 50 years including an event in late July and early August 2010
Quantitative Attribution of Vertical Motion Responsible for Summer Heavy Rainfall Over North China
This study explores synoptic‐scale circulation conditions that favor vertical motion on heavy rainfall days (HRDs) over North China (NC) and analyzes the quantitative contribution to vertical motion

Quasi-Geostrophic Controls on Precipitating Ascent in Monsoon Depressions
South Asian monsoon depressions are convectively coupled cyclonic vortices that form and intensify in a region of easterly vertical shear of the horizontal wind. Observations of maximum precipitation
Complex networks reveal global pattern of extreme-rainfall teleconnections
TLDR
Analysis of the atmospheric conditions that lead to these teleconnections confirms Rossby waves as the physical mechanism underlying these global teleconnection patterns and emphasizes their crucial role in dynamical tropical–extratropical couplings.
