In this paper, we suggest criteria for the identification of active and break events of the Indian summer monsoon on the basis of recently derived high resolution daily gridded rainfall dataset over India (1951
In this review article, the authors have examined the skill of the state-of-the-art coupled ocean-atmosphere models in simulating the twentieth century mean climate of the Indian monsoon. Assessment of the skill and systematic biases of the climate models is very important for interpreting and assessing the future climate change projections over the Indian region from these models.
To meet the requirements of the research community, a high resolution daily gridded temperature data set for the Indian region was developed. For this purpose, daily temperature (maximum, minimum and mean) data of 395 quality controlled
