[AAS03-P04] Relationship between the South China Sea summer monsoon onset and tropical cyclone genesis over the western North Pacific in May
Keywords:South China Sea summer monsoon, Tropical cyclone genesis, Western North Pacific
In addition, there were cases in which TCs were generated before the onset of the SCSSM, accounting for 43.2% of the TCs generated during late April and May. This study examined a representative case, super typhoon Chanchu (0601), providing an example in which a TC triggered the onset of the SCSSM. The correlation between the onset of the SCSSM and the WNP TCs highlights not only the influence of the monsoon trough on TC genesis but also the impact of TC on the onset of the SCSSM.
