On the likelihood of tropical-extratropical cloud bands in the South Indian Convergence Zone during ENSO events

Abstract:

The Southern Hemisphere subtropical convergence zones are important regions of rainfall in the subtropics. The South Indian convergence zone (SICZ) has the strongest seasonality and exhibits substantial interannual variability in strength and position during austral summer. On synoptic time scales, the SICZ is a preferred region for the formation of tropical-extratropical (TE) cloud bands with local maxima over the southern African mainland and Madagascar. This study investigates how the seas...
