Research Highlight

Influence of upper ocean on Indian summer monsoon rainfall: studies by observation and NCEP climate forecast system(CFSv2)

The excess and deficit ISMR clearly brings out the distinct signatures in sea surface height (SSH) anomaly, thermocline and mixed layer depth over north Indian Ocean. The differences are basically generated by upwelling and downwelling caused by  the equatorial and coastal Kelvin and Rossby waves, thereby causing difference in SSHA and thermocline, and subsequently modifies the convection centers, which dictates precipitation over the Indian subcontinent region The presence of positive heat content anomalies over the BoB are favorable for the formation of low-pressure systems/monsoon depressions by enhanced convection . As a result, India gets widespread rainfall during flood years.
