Introduction
Introduction Vertical cloud structures of the boreal summer intraseasonal variability based on CloudSat observations and ERA-interim reanalysis,2010

  • Sikka and Gadgil(1980);Cadet(1986); Lawrence and Webster(2002).

    The meridional propagation of the BSISV is found to be intimately associated with active and break phases of the Asian summer monsoon

  • Jiang et al. (2004)

    Identified prominent meridional asymmetric structures associated with the northward propagating BSISV.

Introduction Vertical cloud structures of the boreal summer intraseasonal variability based on CloudSat observations and ERA-interim reanalysis,2010

  • Hsu et al.(2004);Fu et al.(2006)

    The northward shift of low-level moisture perturbation relative to the BSISV convection, which may suggest a pre-conditioning process for its northward propagation.

  • An “easterly vertical wind shear” mechanism to explain the northward propagation of the BSISV.


Datasets Vertical cloud structures of the boreal summer intraseasonal variability based on CloudSat observations and ERA-interim reanalysis,2010

  • European Centre for Medium-Range Weather Forecasts (ECMWF) ERA-interim reanalysis

    Liquid water content (LWC) and ice and water content (IWC) (2006 ~ 2008)

  • CloudSat dataset

    Liquid water content (LWC) and ice and water content (IWC) (2006 ~ 2008)

  • Tropical Rainfall Measuring Mission (TRMM)

    Daily mean rainfall with a horizontal resolution of 1° × 1°

    (2006~2008)

Summary and discussion Vertical cloud structures of the boreal summer intraseasonal variability based on CloudSat observations and ERA-interim reanalysis,2010

  • Increased LWC in the lower troposphere is located north of the BSISVrainfall maximum, and therefore leads the convection,so northward displacement.

  • Enhanced LWC anomalies to the north of the BSISV convection center are largely associated with low-level cumulus/stratocumulus clouds.


Summary and discussion Vertical cloud structures of the boreal summer intraseasonal variability based on CloudSat observations and ERA-interim reanalysis,2010

  • The maximum LWC anomalies are detected in the lower troposphere based on CloudSat, and in the middle troposphere in the ERA-interim.

  • Enhanced cloud IWC is evident in the upper troposphere corresponding to enhanced BSISV convection.


Summary and discussion Vertical cloud structures of the boreal summer intraseasonal variability based on CloudSat observations and ERA-interim reanalysis,2010

  • Aforementioned differences in LWC and IWC structures associated with the BSISV could be

    ascribed to model biases and differences between CloudSat and ERA-interim datasets could be due to data sampling.
