Abstract

During our search for dynamical differences in monsoon flows between the active and break phases of the monsoon, we noticed some interesting differences which may have some dynamical significance and do not appear to have been highlighted so far. There appear to be shifts of quasi-stationary flow features both in the lower and upper tropospheres.
