The spatiotemporal structure of precipitation in Indian monsoon depressions

Article English OPEN
Hunt, K. M. R.; Turner, Andy G.; Parker, D. E.;

Indian monsoon depressions are synoptic scale events typically spun up in the Bay of Bengal. They usually last 4–6 days, during which they propagate northwestward across the Indian subcontinent before dissipating over northwest India or Pakistan. They can have a signifi... View more
