Application of microwave remote sensing data for Indian summer monsoon studies
Keywords:Microwave remote sensing, Indian summer monsoon, Monsoon onset, Intraseasonal oscillation, Diurnal variability and Remote sensing
Microwave remote sensing is increasingly being used for studying the atmospheric and oceanic processes for the last few decades. Advantage of the microwave sensors is that they can see through the clouds and to some extent rain. Monsoon studies received considerable thrust from microwave remote sensing because clouds cover most parts of Asia during the summer monsoon season and the visible and infrared sensors poorly perform over this region. This paper summarizes the significant results obtained towards the understanding and forecasting of Indian summer monsoon especially monsoon onset, intraseasonal oscillation of monsoon, diurnal variability of rainfall and boundary layer fluxes with the help of microwave remote sensing.
