Figure 10.12: Relative characteristics
of break and active precipitation composites of the Indian monsoon as simulated
by (a) GCM and (b) RCM. Each field is the difference in the break and active composite
precipitation as a percentage of the full mean. Overlaid are the 850 hPa wind
anomalies (break composite minus active composite, units ms-1). Regions marked
where observed ratios are <-50% (central India) and >+50% (Tamil Nadu and
north-eastern India) according to Hamilton (1977). From Hassel and Jones (1999).
