GEWEX Asian Moonsoon Experiment/Asian Automated Weather Station Network

Project Description
GEWEX Asian Monsoon Experiment Asian summer and winter monsoons
play a major role in the global energy transport and water cycle
by redistributing the total solar energy input to the Earth. The
overall goal of the GEWEX Asian Monsoon Experiment (GAME) is to
understand the role of the Asian monsoon in the global climate
system and develop methods for long-range forecasting.

GAME Objectives:

To understand the role of the Asian monsoon in the global energy and
water cycle.

To improve the simulation and seasonal prediction of the Asian
monsoon.

To assess the impact of monsoon variability on the regional
hydrological cycle.
