Role of tropical mid-latitude interaction in the genesis of a monsoon depression - A detailed case study
Keywords:Genesis of monsoon depression, Tropical mid-latitude interaction, Development of monsoon troughs
During northern summer, a monsoon stationary wave which maintains as part of its baroclinic structure three well-defined troughs, one each in the region of the Arabian sea, the Bay of Bengal and South China sea, frequently interacts with the mid-latitude baroclinic waves which amplify during their eastward passage with profound influence on the development of the monsoon troughs. The paper discusses the mechanism of this wave-wave interaction as suggested by the temporal evolution of the themla1 and wind fields associated with the waves and reports the findings of a detailed study of a case of tropical-mid latitude interaction in which the development of a monsoon trough led to the birth of a westward-propagating monsoon depression over South China.
