The article discusses helical monsoon in Asia and inhomogeneous gravity force (IGF). Topics discussed include mathematical modeling of general atmospheric circulation (GAC), analysis of helicity, and study based on the reanalysis data carried out by the US National Center for Atmospheric Research (NCAR) and the National Centers for Environmental Prediction (NCEP).
