About this book

This volume presents a survey of our state of knowledge of the physical and dynamical processes involved in the Asian monsoon. Although traditionally the main emphasis has been on the study of the atmospheric component, it has long been known that the oceans play a vitally important part in determining the occurrence of this spectacular seasonal event.

A scientific study of this phenomenon involves a detailed investigation of the dynamical processes which occur in both the atmosphere and the ocean, on timescales on up to at least a year and on spatial scales from a few hundred kilometres or so up to that of the global atmospheric and oceanic circulations. The editors present a coherent survey of each of the meteorological, oceanographic and hydrological aspects and of their implications for weather forecasting and flood prediction. First published in 1981.

Contents

Part I. The large-scale climatology of the tropical atmosphere;
Part II. The summer monsoon over the Indian subcontinent and East Africa;
Part III. The physics and dynamics of the Indian Ocean during the summer monsoon;
Part IV. Some important mathematical modelling techniques;
