Fig. 6 , which are for the rainfall systems of (top) Borneo, (middle) Karimata Strait, and (bottom) Sumatra. Rainfall is plotted according to the right ordinate (mm h −1 ). These patterns suggest a gravity wave mode that is coupled to and excited by the synchronized, vigorous nocturnal convective systems over Sumatra and Borneo ( Figs. 6 and 8 ). This gravity mode hence assumes a zonal wavelength of ~1500 km, roughly matching the spacing between these two systems. Despite the slower phase speed
