Monsoons are a seasonally changing wind circulation system often associated with extreme events such as floods and droughts. These major wind systems, caused by a contrast in heat between land and ocean, are typically characterized by a seasonal reversal of wind direction and distribution of heavy rainfall, affecting the lives and property of people across the world from the tropics to those residing in the mid-latitudes. This session invites presentations on both physical and societal aspects of monsoon climates across the globe in Asia, Australia, Africa, and Americas over the various temporal scales from intraseasonal to paleoclimatic variability.
