Short summary
We investigate the simulation of the Indian monsoon in the UK Met Office climate model. We simulate both the atmosphere and the ocean (which can interact with each other) and compare against simulating the atmosphere alone. Atmosphere–ocean interactions make the modelled average monsoon climate less realistic because the sea surface temperature is wrong in the model, but the interactions make individual rain events, in which storms propagate northwards over the Indian Ocean, more realistic.
