Abstract

The effect of surface drag to the depth of monsoon depression over India has been computed using a quasigeostrophic ω-equation. The rate of intensification in an average monsoon depression of radius 1000 km and extending up to 500 mb in the vertical is shown to be of the order of 4 mb/day which is very near to the observed values.
