1 Mihir Kumar Dash*, Dhrubajyoti Samanta* and P. C. Pandey** * Indian Institute of Technology, Kharagpur * Indian Institute of Technology, Bhubaneswar

2 Outline Introduction Data and Methodology Rossby wave breaking and circulation over the West Asia Convective inhibition over the Indian subcontinent Summary Indian Institute of Technology, Kharagpur

3 Introduction Indian Institute of Technology, Kharagpur Major 200-hPa circulation anomalies accompanied with climatological zonal wind (shading >15m) from June to September. The dotted line indicates the zero zonal wind line in 200-hPa Adopted from Ding Q Westerly Jet or wave guide High Pressure regions

4 Indian Institute of Technology, Kharagpur Krishnan et al Low over WCI Blocking high over south eastern china

5 Ten-day back trajectories from central India. Dry spell for trajectories terminating at 850 (green) and 700 (red) hPa (from Krishnamurti et al, 2010) 18 June th August th July th August 2001 Indian Institute of Technology, Kharagpur Western Asia Dry Air Incursion

6 Indian Institute of Technology, Kharagpur Rossby Wave Breaking Overturning of PV event at 350-K PV (a)Anticyclonic (b) Cyclonic. contoured every 2 potential vorticity units. From Strong and Magnusdottir, 2009

7 Data and Methodology
