A radar study of post monsoon thunderstorms over Bombay airport
The paper deals with the radar echoes of post monsoon thunderstorms observed over Bombay airport during the past few years with a Decca type 41 Radar operating on 3 cm wave length. The post monsoon thunderstorm activity is confined to certain areas, over the Western Ghats and lakes on the eastern side of Bombay. The time of occurrence is during late afternoon and night. The speed of movement of these thunderstorms is quite slow when compared to that of monsoon radar echoes. The direction of movement is from land to sea, generally from NE to SW. Most of the thunderstorms do not affect the Bombay airport. They usually dissipate over, the land itself, or over the sea near the coast.
