Role of CAPE and CINE in modulating the convective activities during April over India
Keywords:Convective available potential energy, Convective inhibition energy
During the month of April, except over northwest India, where rain is normally associated with the intrusion of midlatitudinal westerly systems in the form of western disturbances, other parts of the country receive rain due to enhancement of convective activities in the form of thundershowers, occurring over many parts of the country. The role of Convective Available Potential Energy (CAPE) and Convective Inhibition Energy (CINE) were studied for the occurrence of more convective activities in the month of April 1997 compared to other years. The results reveal that larger values of CAPE and smaller values of CINE in April 1997 over various parts of India compared to other years were responsible for more convective activities and consequently appreciable fall in temperature in April 1997.
