Monsoons

The word monsoon comes from the Arabic word 'mausim' which translates as 'season', which is suggestive of the seasonal nature of the monsoon and its associated rains.

A monsoon climate is characterised by a dramatic seasonal change in direction of the prevailing winds of a region which brings a marked change in rainfall. The monsoon climate results in high annual rainfall totals exceeding 1.5 m (5 ft) in many places. Monsoons lead to distinct wet and dry seasons

drivers of the South Asian climate are the El Niño Southern Oscillation (ENSO) and the Indian Ocean Dipole (IOD). These are irregular coupled atmosphere-ocean oscillations which drive variability in monsoon rainfall from year-to-year. In general, the warm (cool) phase of ENSO results in a drier (wetter

as the continent of Asia heats up low pressure forms, bringing warm, moisture laden winds from the Pacific and Indian Oceans. The summer months are therefore much wetter for large areas of China, and are commonly known as the "monsoon season". The reliability of the seasonal weather across more populated

and September. So, if we already know the “typical” weather in a season – that is, the “climate”, then why do we need a forecast? Well a season’s characteristics naturally vary from one year to another; for example, a mild and wet winter one year may be followed by a cold and dry winter the next

to increase across the whole of Southeast Asia (see figure 5.). The strongest annual warming is likely to occur in mainland Southeast Asia, with fairly uniform warming throughout the seasons. Regional surface air temperature is typically expected to rise by 2 °C by mid-century and by 4 °C by the end

supercomputers at a final resolution of 100 m over vast areas of jungle. We also generated historical 10-15 year datasets along the proposed railroads, using several verification methods to provide complex interpretations of storm duration and frequency during dry and wet seasons. The result

Asia holiday weather

Across the 17 million square miles that make up Asia, there is great variation from the freezing climes of its polar north to hot, dry deserts in its centre and a hot and tropical south.

Asia weather climate Asia is a vast continent covering almost 30% of the earth's land surface. Similarly to the Americas, Asia has great variances of climates from the wetter south eastern regions, warmer south west areas and the freezing temperatures of Siberia. Asia tourist information Asia

The patterns for precipitation (rainfall, snowfall) are more localised, with an increased chance of higher rainfall in northwest Europe and lower rainfall in southern Europe
