  abstract = {{We investigate the respective roles of large-scale transport and
convection in determining the water vapor maximum at 100 hPa in the
Asian monsoon region. The study uses backward trajectories with ECMWF
ERA-Interim heating rates. It includes simple microphysics with
supersaturation and takes into account convective sources based on CLAUS
data with a simple parameterization of overshoots. A good agreement
between reconstructed water vapor and observations is obtained over
Asia. It is found that parcels belonging to the water vapor maximum have
been first lifted by convection over the Bay of Bengal and the Sea of
China and then transported through the tropical tropopause layer (TTL)
via the monsoon anticyclonic circulation towards North-West India, where
they are eventually dehydrated, avoiding the coldest temperatures of the
TTL. Convective moistening accounts for about 0.3 ppmv in the Asian
monsoon region and overshoots do not have a significant impact on the
water vapor budget.
