Meridional cross sections of total diabatic heating (K day−1) averaged between 85 and 95° E. They are based on experiments with a the full TP, b the narrow southern TP, and c no TP. In b and c, the no-TP parts are set to 1200 m. The black shaded region denotes the topography in the experiment. It should be noted that only the uplift of the southern margin of TP is enough to cause diabatic heating along the frontal Himalaya and/or the southern margin of the TP. From Chen et al. (2014)
