[AAS03-P08] Mechanisms for northward propagation of boreal summer intraseasonal oscillation
Keywords:Boreal summer intraseasonal oscillation, Asian monsoon, Northward propagation
Although the perpetual experiment has strong Indian monsoon over Arabian sea due to the bias of surface temperature on land, it is found that the NP of the BSISO from Indian Ocean (IO) has two abovementioned mechanisms. One warm SST anomaly north of convection destabilize the lower troposphere, while another tilted vertical shear can generate positive barotropic vorticity to the north of convection. In order to assess the effect of the former mechanism, we made an experiment using fix SST (SSTFIX) obtained from CTL experiment. SSTFIX experiment reproduces the NP of the BSISO from IO, although the amplitude became lower. Therefore, it suggests that the NP of the BSISO from IO doesn’t need warm SST anomaly. To Improve the bias related to basic state like vertical shear, we conducted an experiment using nudging method for surface temperature on land (LNDADJ). In LNDADJ experiment the NP of the BSISO from IO isn’t reproduced due to reduction of column water vapor over Bay of Bengal. Thus, tilted vertical shear can just begin the NP. On the other hand, it is suggested that the NP needs SST and column water vapor to maintain its strength.
