(Ill) The Climatological Summer Monsoon Onset and Seasonal March Displays a Distinct Stepwise Northward and Northeastward Advance. Over East Asia, two abrupt northward jumps and three stationary periods have been identified in the process of the seasonal march of the summer monsoon while over the western North Pacific three stages of onset and advance of the summer monsoon have been identified (Wu and Wang 2001). These stepwise onset and advance in the two major monsoon regions appear to be nearly concurrent.
