Kinetic energy budget of active summer monsoon on Southeast Asia

In this paper present and show kinetic energy and convective available potential energy (CAPE) on active summer monsoon on May to August from 1981 to 1990. Result show that kinetic energy usually appear over Bay of Bengal and India area. Because of zonal and meridional components are flow through India area that active monsoon is happen. However, kinetic energy is less available potential energy. The distribution of CAPE in summer and the value of high CAPE located between the equator and 20°N and low CAPE located below equator. The pattern CAPE position distribution fluctuates as an inter-tropical convergence zone.
