Abstract

Rainfall diurnal variation over the Indonesian Maritime Continent simulated by a super high resolution atmospheric general circulation model (GCM-TL959) is examined. GCM-TL959 is successful in representing spatio-temporal characteristics of observed rainfall diurnal cycle over the region. The model also seems to simulate local circulations such as land-sea breeze. The speed of rainfall migration over land and coastal sea in GCM-TL959 is consistent with that of a gravity current.
