Article first published online: 9 JUL 2013 | DOI: 10.1002/jgrd.50565

Key Points

  • The land-sea T gradient is more important in the upper than in lower troposphere
  • Tropical oceans influence extra-tropical monsoons through the upper troposphere
  • Monsoon response to global warming depends on tropospheric warming patterns
