Prof. Enomoto co-authored a paper on the predictability of the intensified monsoonal trough in late August 2016. It as been published in J. Meteor. Soc. Japan. The role of the propagation and subsequent breaking of Rossby waves alon g the monsoonal trough was demonstrated by numerical experiments using the JMA global spectral model (GSM). The perturbations added over the Bering Sea in the entrance region of the Asian jet, found from ensemble sensitivity analysis, act to enforce the monsoonal trough, which were underestimated in JMA’s operational one-month forecast.
