SODAR STUDIES OF THE MONSOON TROUGH BOUNDARY LAYER AT JODHPUR (INDIA)
Keywords:Sodar, Monsoon trough, MONTBLEX, Atmosphere, Boundary, Thermal, Turbulent, Depression, Rainfall.
A monostatic sodar was set up at Jodhpur, the extreme end of the monsoon trot*, to study the thermal boundary layer up to a height of 700 m. This effort was a part of the co-ordinated multi institutional project to study the monsoon dynamics. The usual structures of thermal plumes, ground based stable layers, elevated/multi- layers with or without undulations and dot echoes were seen. However, erosion of the inversion layer normally observed in the morning in the form of a rising layer over land areas was absent all through the period of observation from June to August 1990. In the paper, a study of the observed data in relation to the rainfall activity has been made. A preliminary examination shows that sodar structures may provide addi• tional information, not available normally through the conventional meteorological tools.
