Dynamic Monsoon Vector Analysis

PI: Li Zhang
My work is focus on the simulation of Eastern Asia climate ,then, we know, monsoon is a very important factor to influence Eastern Asia climate. So I choose monsoon as my first object during my evaluation. We often use 850hpa V vector, precipitation, ORL and so on to define monsoon, in another words, 850hpa V vector is a representative character in the monsoon area. But most of the criterion about evaluate it before was static, such as spacial field of a average state at certain time or certain season, but my new criterion is dynamic, it's reflect the variety of V vector to the time. I am writing a article about this criterion now, maybe after I finish it, you can get more detail about it.
