Seasonal changes in satellite observed cloudiness and radiometric measurements in the tropical belt of Africa and Asia
Monthly mean analysis of the TIROS,-VII 8-12 micron radiation data for the period 1963-1964, global satellite observed cloudiness for the year 1965 and 1966 and the global brightness charts for the year 1967published by different workers are studied -in detail for the monsoonal belt of Africa and Asia. The discussion highlights seasonal changes in the cloudiness with respect to atmospheric circulation features of the region grouped in to more or less different homogeneous belts. The study of the data over the Indian belt suggests a connection between the advance and retreat of the southwest monsoon cloudiness with changes of cloudiness over southwest Bay of Bengal, northeast India and Eastern China. Variations in the westward and eastward extent of the cloudiness over the equator in the Indian Ocean and Pacific Ocean respectively are discussed.
