Which parts of India are influenced by the Arabian Sea branch of the south-west monsoons?


SOLUTION

  • As India is surrounded by Bay of Bengal on the east and Arabian Sea on the west, monsoons in India arrive as Bay of Bengal branch and Arabian Sea branch.
  • The Arabian Sea Branch of the south-west monsoon first hits the Western Ghats of the coastal state of Kerala, thus making this area first to receive rain from the south-west monsoon. This branch of the monsoon moves northwards towards western side.
