Research Highlight


Linkage between global sea surface temperature and hydroclimatology of a major river basin of India before and after 1980

Global sea surface temperature (SST) linkage with the precipitation and surface temperature of the MRB was analyzed over the period 1950–2012. Significant changes in seasonal correlation patterns were witnessed from 1950–1980 (PR-80) to 1981–2012 (PO-80). The correlation was higher during PR-80 compared to PO-80 between the El Nino region SST versus the maximum temperature (Tmax) in all seasons except the pre-monsoon season and the minimum temperature (Tmin) in all seasons except the monsoon season.
