Abstract

Using the daily upper air data of 00 GMT, the values of precipitable water, mean and eddy transport of moisture and the vergence patterns over the Indian sub-continent were evaluated for two contrasting summer monsoon seasons, 1966 and 1967. The precipitable water did not change markedly between the strong and weak monsoons. But there was a marked decrease in the zonal transport, up to 70, in certain regions in the weak monsoon. In the strong monsoon, the meridional transport increased by a factor of 2 in certain regions and the vergence patterns also strengthened likewise in certain other regions.
