Geography

The climate and weather conditions in India are governed by __________.


ANSWER

All the above


SOLUTION

The climate and weather conditions in India are governed by: 

  • Pressure and surface winds: a low-pressure system draws winds towards it from a region of high pressure resulting in rainfall.
  • Coriolis force and upper air circulation:  The low-pressure land system attracts southeast trade winds. After crossing equator winds turn right de to Coriolis force and are directed towards the low-pressure areas over the Indian subcontinent. These winds start blowing in a southwesterly direction and enter the Indian peninsula as the southwest monsoon.  
  • Western cyclonic disturbances: Bring winter rainfall to India.
