It turns out the Indian monsoon pushed most of the pollutants away from our immediate atmosphere into the anticyclone. A lot of these pollutants were then being neutralised, i.e.
As shown in Figure 8(a), in the winter and spring of 2009-2010, compared with the average state of 1979-2012, an anomalous anticyclone is excited in the India-Burma trough region, and the trough is evidently weak, which is in accordance with the situation in IIBT series (Figure 3(a)).
The IPSL5 model, which represents the Benguela upwelling zone better than most, predicts a poleward shift of subtropical anticyclones as C[O.sub.2] rises.
However, the predictive connection between the increase of HCRF and the formation of an anticyclone as well as duration over the observation station is rather complicated, so the definition of this connection requires extensive statistical information on the experimental data.

The principal large-scale systems responsible for the variability of precipitation over South America are: the Alta de Bolivia (AB), the South Atlantic Convergence Zone (SACZ), the Intertropical Convergence Zone (ITCZ), the South Pacific Anticyclone (SPA), and the South Atlantic Anticyclone (SAA).
What type of weather is normally experienced during a summer anticyclone in the British Isles?
The jet stream is steered around dominant features of the pressure pattern, such as the semi-permanent Azores anticyclone, in turn, it moves smaller-scale, low-pressure areas that are associated with wind and precipitation.
Moreover, November brought little relief to the problem, as the dry air mass of the Atlantic anticyclone remained over the northwestern Caribbean for most of the month.
Unusually warm weather hit the Japanese archipelago on Tuesday, from Tohoku in the northeast to Kanto in the east, as a migratory anticyclone prevailed over the country, the Japan Meteorological Agency said.
While the Humboldt Current creates a stable atmosphere, the eastern Pacific anticyclone, a high-pressure cell, determines the patterns of winds that reach the coast.
Seasonal and annual variations in precipitation in northern Patagonia (at about 40 [degrees] S) are strongly influenced by changes in the intensity and latitudinal positions of the southeast Pacific anticyclone (Pittock 1973, 1980).
