by the TP can generate Rossby waves in the westerlies, which can propagate downstream and influence the circulation anomaly elsewhere. It is also located over the central and eastern parts of the Eurasian continent, facing the Indian Ocean to the south and the Pacific Ocean to its east. Therefore the Tibetan Plateau can exert profound thermal and dynamical influences on the circulation, energy, and water cycles of the climate system. Before the 1950s, most of the studies concerning the influence

and wet years. According to the Köppen Climate Classification, the western U.S. climate varies from a Mediterranean climate (on the California coast) to a dry tropical climate or desert (east of the Rocky Mountains). BR > 1 represents dry regions like the western United States, where the sensible heat flux gives the major contribution to the balance with the radiation term. The central and eastern United States have more latitudinal climate variations, with a predominant moist continental climate
