INDIA-CLIM: Decadal to multi-decadal variability in the Indian Monsoon Rainfall and teleconnection with Atlantic Multidecadal Oscillation (AMO)

India-CLIM will analyze comprehensive data sets of climate variables for India and output from Earth System model simulations, in order to investigate the variability of the Indian Monsoon with special focus on the wet season of the summer monsoon.

The main hypothesis in the project is that the AMO is an intrinsic oceanic mode and that the associated SST anomalies in Atlantic Ocean can impact the Indian Summer Monsoon through teleconnection.

In order to test our hypothesis, we will use the re-analysis and observed data as well as IPCC/CMIP5 simulations to explore the decadal to multi-decadal variability of Indian Summer Monsoon and the teleconnection with AMO.
