• Comments on 1Choice of South Asian Summer Monsoon Indices' •Reply •A New Minimum Temperature Record for Illinois • Spatial Representativeness of Temperature Measurements from a Single Site Comments on "Choice of Sou^h Asian meridional wind shear associated with it, which is Summer Monsoon Indices" clearly evident in the regression pattern of W F (their Fig. 4c). This basically was the point made by GKA The choice of an appropriate index for the south in their paper. It is true that it may not apply as well to Asian summer monsoon has been a subject of some an equatorial heat source. controversy and received considerable attention in re- One criticism of the use of the meridional shear (or cent years (Webster and Yang; Goswami et al. 1999). southerly shear as they call it) is the fact that the "cli- Two major indices are the zonal wind shear index pro- matological" mean meridional winds are not homo- posed by Webster and Yang (1992, hereafter referred geneous over the region where MHI is defined (see to WYI) and the meridional shear index defined by Figs, lc and 2c of WF).
