Diagnosis of tropical cyclones over the west Pacific and Asian monsoon region in different climate scenarios

PI: R. Krishnan
Additional Investigators: A.K.Sahai, M.Mujumdar, Vinay Kumar, Suchitra Sundaram, Basanta Kumar Samala, Sudipta Banerjee
Objectives of the study: Synoptic scale disturbances like lows, monsoon depressions, west Pacific typhoons are integral part of the Indian and East Asian monsoon systems. Variations in large-scale circulation associated with different phenomena (eg., El Nino / Southern Oscillation (ENSO); interannual variability of the Asian monsoon, etc) are known to exert significant influence on the genesis and track-type characteristics of these disturbances. Therefore, in the context of climate assessment it will be necessary to investigate (a) The influence of climate change on large-scale phenomena like ENSO and monsoon interannual variability (b) The likely changes in the synoptic disturbances over the tropical Pacific, Indian and East Asian monsoon regions. The objective of this study is to assess the possible impacts of climate change on the variability of the large-scale circulations in the tropical atmosphere; as well as changes in the synoptic scale disturbances over the Indo-Pacific sector.
