Baroclinity over India in winter and its relation to western disturbances and jet streams -Part I
Keywords:baroclimatic zone, airmass, western disturbances, jet streams
The existence of baroclimatic zones over India in winter has been investigated with the halp of histograms of temperatures at selected stations. It has been found that there are two baroclinic zones in winter-one roughly along 250 N over western and central India and the other along 33°N over northwest India. Both are comparable in Intensity and weaker than those observed over North .America or Western Pacific. The airmasses responsible for their formation and their relation with the western disturbances have been discussed.
