Using atmospheric model experiments, researchers have shown that the warming of the tropical Indian Ocean relative to the other two tropical ocean basins can effectively control Walker Circulation changes in the Pacific and Atlantic oceans and influence climate far beyond the Indian Ocean region.
Comparing past and future changes in Southern Hemisphere monsoons has revealed how they will alter with climate change under a business-as-usual scenario.
