Short summary
Monthly accumulated COSMIC RO data is used to examine the interannual variability of UTLS temperature over the Ganges-Brahmaputra-Meghna river basin from 2006 to 2013. PCA analysis of tropopause temperatures and heights indicates that ENSO accounts for 73% of the interannual variability with a correlation of 0.77 with Niño3.4 index whereas the QBO explains about 10% of the variability. The tropopause temperature (height) increased (decreased) by about 1.5oC (300 m) during the 2009/2010 El Niño.
