Rainfall intensity and its variation are closely related to the fluctuations of the summer monsoon. -•- : 1 2 3 4 5 6 1 2 3 4 5 6 1 APR MAY 20 : '•' '° 'J '~ ** "^^s^S^ ' \ i f ' < ''•'^t : 0 :\ ;•' 'f x ^^ 12N" r__/~--S' : V- » ' ' — \ \;' \ ———<——TT- \ : : H. *y '"\1HHMI ' ffl^^Bsl : 2 3 4 5 6 1 JUN 2 3 4 5 6 1 JUL 2 3 4 5 6 1 AUG 2 3 4 5 6 SEP Figure 21.

This matched the timing of the monsoon onset over the northern part of the SCS. In the fifth pentad of May, with enhancement and northward movement of the center of the anticyclone over the region from the Indo-China Peninsula to the SCS, the northeasterly or northerly air currents to the east of the South Asian high entirely prevailed over the SCS. Corresponding to the low-level southwesterly air current, this implied the full onset of the summer monsoon over the whole SCS (Figure 14c). 200hpa,may1 998,pen5 "" -ii-^zs^^^^zL^p-^—- ^ c S - ^ T ^ A 7 ' V_1^J "" r ^ ^ ^ ^ ^ ^ ^ ~ ^ " " S°-'-~l "* ^ " A^> ^ i\ ; -/• 15» • Y~^v"^—^-rr-i< .

6% of the SCS summer monsoon onsets. Sometimes the first onset of the SCS summer monsoon initially occurs in the southern SCS and then gradually extends northward. This type of the first onset in the southern SCS accounts for 15% (7 years). Although this onset also assumes a two-stage process, it is rather gradual, without a distinct transition from the first stage to the second stage. 4% (27 years). Therefore, the process of the first onset of the summer monsoon over the northern SCS is to some extent representative of a major monsoon onset process in the SCS, even from the climatological viewpoint.
