Climatological moisture sources for the Western North American Monsoon through a Lagrangian approach: their influence on precipitation intensity
Earth System Dynamics
<p><strong>Abstract.</strong> This work examines the origin of atmospheric water vapor arriving to the western North American monsoon (WNAM) region over a 34-year period (1981–2014) using a Lagrangian approach. This methodology computes budgets of evaporation minus precipitation <span class="inline-formula">(<i>E</i>−<i>P</i>)</span> by calculating changes in the specific humidity of thousands of air particles advected into the study area by the observed winds. The length of the period analyzeddoi:10.5194/esd-10-59-2019 fatcat:vwcog2g6l5dmpm5aha3cfafave
