Abstract

An attempt has been made to examine the relationship between break/active phases of the Indian summer monsoon and rainfall activity over China. Twelve cases of active and fifteen cases of break phases during the Indian summer monsoon have been examined. Rainfall data over China from 'Asian Precipitation -Highly-Resolved Observational Data Integration Towards Evaluation of the Water Resources' have been used for this study. The amount and areal coverage of rainfall over China were examined during break/active phases of the Indian summer monsoon. It was found that during initiation of break phase in the Indian summer monsoon, rainfall amount and its areal coverage increased over China. The onset of its decrease marked the beginning of the end of the break phase. Exactly opposite trend was observed during the active monsoon phases. This study provides some clue about the end of the break or active phase, although it does not give any signal of initiation of break or active phase in monsoon.
