Abstract: [1] The variability of both the stationary planetary wave activity and the East Asian winter monsoon is strongly associated with the thermal contrast between oceans and landmasses. In this study, we explore the interannual relationship between the monsoon and the wave activity defined by an index of the difference in the divergence of EliassenPalm flux between 50°N at 500 hPa and 40°N at 300 hPa. It is found that, compared to the winters of low wave activity, the equatorward propagation of planetary waves in …
