POAMA/ACCESS-S miscellaneous products: Observed monsoon rainfall indices

Australian monsoon index active break all (ascii) Indian monsoon index active break all (ascii)

Updated in realtime, these observed rainfall indices are calculated for the Australian monsoon region as described in Marshall and Hendon (2015), doi: 10.1002/2015GL067086, and for the northwest & central Indian "monsoon core zone" as described in Rajeevan et al. (2010), doi: 10.1007/s12040-010-0019-4.

Key details of each calculation are given in the ascii files linked above. Data is shown from 1981 to the present.

These rainfall indices contribute to the work of the Subseasonal to Seasonal (S2S) Prediction Monsoon Sub-project and the CLIVAR-GEWEX Asian-Australian Monsoon Working Group.
