The Asian monsoon system is one of the most complicated weather and climate systems in the world, involving interactions between land, ocean, atmosphere, hydrosphere and biosphere, with the impact of the biosphere becoming more involved as a result of various human activities. A number of recent research programmes have been devoted to understanding this complex monsoon system, for example the Monsoon Asian Hydro-Atmosphere Scientific Research and Prediction Initiative (MAHASRI), and the Asian Monsoon Years (AMY 2007–2012) in the World Climate Research Programme (WCRP), and these efforts have done much to advance our understanding of the Asian monsoon hydroclimate.
