Local Processes and Global Constraints in the Indian Monsoon

Lead PI: Prof. Adam Sobel

Unit Affiliation: Ocean and Climate Physics, Lamont-Doherty Earth Observatory (LDEO)

December 2018 - December 2021
Project Type: Research

DESCRIPTION: Our project will address outstanding gaps in our fundamental scientific understanding of the physical processes underlying the monsoon. At the same time, the advances made will be used in the service of advancing prediction of the monsoon on the seasonal to interannual time scale, thus connecting operational forecasting to the underlying theory of the general circulation.
