  • Interaction of the monsoon and Pacific trade wind system at interannual time scales. Part I. The equatorial zone
  • The monsoon and trade-winds are strongly coupled at interannual time scales. The coupling is effected through pulsations of the massive low-level convergence in the Indo-Pacific created by the joint action of each wind system. The interaction may
  • Diurnal variation of the trade-wind boundary layer
  • The Relationship of trade wind cumulus distribution to subcloud layer fluxes and structures
  • Correlations between the tropical Atlantic trade winds and precipitation in northeastern Brazil
  • The influence of trade winds, local air-masses and topographic obstacles on the eolian movement of sand particles and the origin and distribution of dunes and ergs in the Sahara and Australia
  • The trade wind field over the Pacific Ocean
  • The low-level winds over the East African coast are dominated either by the southeasterly trades or by surges through the Mozambique Channel. Significant common features are the diurnal variation of winds over the heated terrain and the prevalence
  • of two stable layers in the vertical in the isotherm field. However, the trade-dominated flows show greater detail in the meridional flow, an average easterly component and a shallow moist stratum capped by a dry layer at 800 mb over the ocean
  • Quaternary fluctuations in the northern hemisphere trade winds and westerlies
  • at 10,600 yr B. P., somewhat younger than the traditionally accepted age of 11,000 yr B. P.
  • support the view that from the Red Sea to the Atlantic the Sahara operates as a dynamic unit with respect to wind action. The movement of sand is in harmony with the trade wind circulation, except where the sand flows around major topographic obstacles
  • A strengthening and subsequent weakening of the equatorial trades occurs prior to the first sea surface temperature anomaly at the coast of Peru, espacially in the Gilbert and Phoenix Island groups, for most of the El Nino events in 1950-1978
  • to trends in the u-component of the trade winds, may affect long-term sea-surface temperature (SST) behavior off the coast of Japan. Short-term fluctuations of SST with large amplitudes appear to be in part caused by meandering characteristics of the ocean
