Winter/Summer Monsoon Experiment

Metadata Updated: February 7, 2018

The Winter/Summer Monsoon Experiment (MONEX) was conducted during the First Global GARP (Global Atmospheric Research Program) Experiment (FGGE). An international team of scientists observed monsoonal circulations over the Arabian Sea, the South China Sea, and the Indian Ocean. This coordinated acquisition of data allowed scientists to better understand the formation of monsoons and their cycles. The collection consists of raw data, summaries, and publications about the experiment and its results, with data available on paper or microfilm. Parameters studied included: precipitation patterns, upper and surface level winds, temperature, humidity, air circulation patterns, cloud variability, as well as other observations.
