‘The climate of India is a Monsoon type’. Explain how?
Indian peninsula is covered on three sides with the Arabian Sea, Bay of Bengal and Indian Ocean. This is the reason why much rainfall is received by our country. Major part of the rainfall in India takes place at the end of summer season known as ‘advancing monsoon season’.
In the rainy season, trade winds also known as ‘monsoon winds’ pick up enough moisture to reach most parts of the country. Western disturbances cause much needed winter rains. ’ Even in peak summers, rainfall is observed in some areas. These monsoon winds cause heavy rainfall in the entire Indian sub-continent. Hence, we can say that the climate of India is ‘Monsoon type’.
