Gadgil, Sulochana and Mohanty, UC (2000) Special issue on: Bay of Bengal Monsoon Experiment - Preface. In: Proceedings of the Indian Academy of Sciences Earth and Planetary Sciences, 109 (2). p. 205.
One of the most challenging problems in atmospheric science is to develop an adequate understanding of the variability of the Indian monsoon on various timescales: subseasonal, interannual and decadal, that could be translated into a predictive capability. The monsoon is strongly coupled to the warm oceans surrounding the subcontinent. Most of the monsoon rainfall occurs in association with synoptic systems, such as lows and depressions, generated over the warm oceans and their subsequent propagation over Indian landmass. The Bay of Bengal is exceptionally fertile generating these systems and plays an important role in monsoon variability.
