The effect of atmospheric blocking high and ridges on weather over Maitri, East Antarctica – A case study
Keywords:Blizzard, Blocking, Geopotential height, Ridge and advection
The Indian Antarctic station, Maitri is often experiencing continuous blizzard over a week with strong surface winds and surface temperature anomalies due to atmospheric blocking during winter and spring seasons of Antarctica. One such case during the last week of August 2000 and another case in mid-July 1996 are studied. There is more blocking activity in winter and spring months. The influence of blocking high on weather parameters during the study period is also presented.
