Winter snow events over the Himalayas. Observations and simulations during CEOP EOP-3

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution

Abstract

The major mechanism responsible for wintertime snowfall events over the Himalayas is the strong dynamical interaction between the Range and the prevailing westerly circulation related to the southern shift of the sub-tropical jet stream during winter. The understanding of the spatial and temporal scales of this interaction I snot complete and the simulation of these weather systems is a challenging task for models. The purpose of this study is to present a preliminary analysis of a snowfall event occurred during winter 2002/2003 by means of observations and model simulations.
