STATISTICAL ANALYSES FOR SEA SURFACE TEMPERATURE OVER THE SOUTH CHINA SEA, BEHAVIOR OF SUBTROPICAL HIGH OVER THE WEST PACIFIC AND MONTHLY MEAN RAINFALL OVER THE CHANGJIANG MIDDLE AND LOWER REACHES

Luo Shaohua Jin Zuhui(Institute of Atmospheric Physics, Acadcmia Sinica)  
A detailed investigation on the relationship of the sea surface temperature (SST) over the South China Sea with the characteristic indices of the subtropical high at 500 hPa and monthly mean rainfall over the Changjiang middle and lower reaches is presented in this paper. Primary analyses show that there are closed relationships of the SST over the South China Sea in autumn and winter with the SST (early summer next year) in the same region and monthly mean rainfall over the Changjiang middle and lower reaches, and that a remarkable relationship exists between the next year early summer SST over the South China Sea and the concurrent characteristic indices of subtropical high at 500 hPa. In addition, the position and intensity of the ridge of the high are also related to the rainfall over the Changjiang middle and lower reaches. That is to say, the higher SST in the South China Sea in autumn and winter is related to the higher SST in the same region, the stronger high in the South China Sea, the further west position of the ridge of subtropical high in the West Pacific, and much more rainfall in the Changjiang middle and lower reaches in the early summer next year. The SST anomalies over the South China Sea in autumn and winter, therefore, can be one of the important factors which influence the rainfall over the Changjiang middle and lower reaches in the early summer next year. The subtropical high ridge over the West Pacific also plays an important role in the process of correlation.
