Abstract

In this study, circulation characteristics associated with the ITCZ during the winter are examined by using the archives of National Centre for Medium Range Weather Forecasting (NCMRWF). To this end, some of the mean large scale basic meteorological and derived fields surrounding the ITCZ are analysed to examine the ITCZ circulation. It would be expected that during the INDOEX field phase experiment, several remote sensing and special observations be generated. To assess the impact of new remote sensing data in maintaining the structure and intensity of ITCZ circulation, an assimilation experiment is conducted using the high resolution TOVS temperature profile data of NOAA over the Indian Ocean for March 1996. An assimilation for the forthcoming INDOEX field phase duration in 1999 is planned by incorporating all satellite and observational data to be collected to study the dynamics of ITCZ.
