Abstract:

Case studies describing regional environmental analysis and forecast applications are based on satellite data and conventional meteorological observations for the Indian Ocean area are presented. Topics include Northeast Monsoon, Southwest Monsoon, coastal zone phenomena, and ocean-atmosphere interaction. The studies provide insights into identifiable patterns of weather development that occur frequently, so that once the basic pattern is recognized at an early stage this information can be used for improved weather analysis and forecasting.
