Which part of India experiences the highest diurnal range of temperature and why?
- Diurnal range of temperature is the difference between maximum and minimum temperature of a day.
- Diurnal range of temperature is high in desert regions like Rajasthan, Thar Desert and interior parts of Rann of Kutch.
- In these sandy areas, the day temperature may rise to 50° and drop down to near freezing point the same night.
- It is so because the sand absorbs heat very fast during day and loses heat very fast at night.
