|A scenario developed by the Dept of Geography at UCSB and the Earth-Space Research Group, part of the Institute for Computational Earth System Science. Includes sections useful for first-year Calculus students. The monsoon, one of the most dramatic climates on the planet, is characterized by a variety of physical mechanisms that produce strong seasonal winds, a wet summer and a dry winter. Unique features make the Indian Ocean Monsoon (IOM) the most intense in the world. Of particular interest is the "wet summer" phase from June to September with prevailing winds from the southwest and heavy rainfall. Exercises (example: Using latent heat flux [evaporation] and precipitation data, determine the total amount of freshwater flux across the ocean surface for each of the six sections given below.).|
