Figure 10.12: Relative characteristics of break and active precipitation composites of the Indian monsoon as simulated by (a) GCM and (b) RCM. Each field is the difference in the break and active composite precipitation as a percentage of the full mean. Overlaid are the 850 hPa wind anomalies (break composite minus active composite, units ms-1). Regions marked where observed ratios are <-50% (central India) and >+50% (Tamil Nadu and north-eastern India) according to Hamilton (1977). From Hassel and Jones (1999).
