Abstract

In this study the relationship between Nimbus-7 snow mass and Indian summer monsoon rainfall (ISMR) for the period 1979-1987 is examined. Results reveal that the January snow mass over two regions of the former USSR - one located north-east of Moscow and the other lying between Mongolia and Siberia - shows a high inverse relationship with subsequent ISMR. However, the snow cover over Eurasia for the month of April shows a significant relation with ISMR. Implications of these connections in long-range forecasting of ISMR are also examined.
