One of the longest temperature records available for the equatorial region is provided by Rocketsonde from Thumba (8°N, 77°E), India during the period – In recent times, these data sets are reanalyzed using the up-to-date regression models, which take care of several corrections and parameters, not accounted for in earlier analyses Cited by: 7. A synopsis is offered of circulation mechanisms in the oceanic regions of the equatorial zone. Over the eastern Atlantic and Pacific, and especially in boreal summer, cross‐equatorial flow from the Southern Hemisphere is strong and induces a tongue of cold surface waters, centred to the south of the by: Fig. 4. Meridional gradients of monthly mean temperature ("C lat 1) in the middle atmosphere of the Southern hemisphere (CAO model) and gradients calculated from CIRA Climatology of the Southern hemisphere Fig. 5. Mean PMR radiances (ch. ) in 19^ vs latitude (calculated from I-ABITZKE and BARNETT January and Julv. Cited by: The climate of India comprises a wide range of weather conditions across a vast geographic scale and varied topography, making generalizations difficult. Climate in south India is generally hotter than north India. Most parts of the nation don't experience temperatures below 10 °C (50 °F) in winter, and the temperature usually tends to exceed 40 °C ( °F) during summer.

The Canadian Middle Atmosphere Model (CMAM) is a comprehensive global circulation model (e.g., Beagley et al. ; de Grandpré et al. ; Scinocca and McFarlane ; Scinocca ), which in its extended version reaches from the ground up to about km in altitude (Fomichev et al. ).It has a spectral resolution between T32 and T47 for different Cited by: 2. Within the tropics, the equatorial highlands have a distinc­tively cooler climate, modified by altitude, such as the Cameron Highlands in Malaysia, the Northern Andes, and the Kenyan Highlands in East Africa. Fig. shows the regions of the world which expe­rience the hot, wet equatorial climate. Features of Equatorial Climate. The Climatology of the Middle Atmosphere in a Vertically Extended Version of the Met Office’s Climate Model. Part I: Mean State.   Equatorial region 1. By-Slide_Maker4u (Abhishek Sharma) 2. Introduction • Equatorial regions are located in a band around the Equator and cover about 6% of the Earth's surface. They are often in lowland areas and have a climate that is hot and wet all year round. Tropical rainforests grow in the equatorial regions. 3.

Equatorial climate -- a type of tropical climate in which there is no dry season – all months have mean precipitation values of at least 60 mm ( inches). fact lexicon with terms going straight to the point. Facts are sorted by community importance and you can build your personalized lexicon.

Near the Equator there is little distinction. the Thumba Equatorial Rocket Launching Station (TERLS) at VSSC. The MIDAS program mainly consists of three themes which address the following scientific objectives: 1. To obtain gravity wave climatology in the middle atmo-sphere over the low-latitude Indian region and to study the impact of gravity waves in the evolution of easterly. Hot Wet Equatorial Climate World Climate & Vegetation Climate is the characteristic condition of the atmosphere near the earth’s surface at a certain place on earth. It is the long-term weather of that area (at least 30 years). This includes the region’s general pattern of weather conditions, seasons and weather extremes like hurricanes, droughts, or.
