Scientists working at UH-Manoa’s International Pacific Research Center have made a breakthrough in their research on East Asian monsoons.

Meterologists have long attempted to figure out a way to predict the amount of rainfall and number of tropical storms that will occur during any given monsoon season. The UH scientists say they finally have an answer.

Apparently, they can predict in spring what the monsoon will be like come summer.

Their study was published in the scholarly journal Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences.
