Diagnostic study of a monsoon depression by Geostrophic Baroclinic Model
Vertical velocities at 850, 700, 500 and 300-mb surfaces, associated with a monsoon depression have been calculated making use of a 4-level geostrophic baroclinic model. The region of upward vertical velocities agrees well with the region of rainfall.
The contributions by the vorticity advection and divergence terms in the vorticity equation have been evaluated, and the importance of the divergence term in formulating a numerical model for the monsoon is brought out.
