In this study, the seasonal development of the North American monsoon system (NAMS), as simulated by a mesoscale model during a 22-yr simulation from 1980 through 2001, is assessed. Comparison between model simulations and observations shows that the model simulation reproduces the precipitation, skin temperature, and wind field patterns in the seasonal development (May-July) of the NAMS reasonably well and that the mesoscale features and spatial heterogeneity of the NAMS are describeddoi:10.1175/1520-0442(2004)017<3892:mcotna>2.0.co;2 fatcat:sehfibwqr5bg3errq5pvxlra44
