Analyze any two factors, determining the climate of India.

Answer :

Two factors determining the climate of India are:

(a) Distance from the sea: areas near the coast have equable or maritime climate. On the other hand, interior locations are not affected by the moderating influence of the sea and they experience extreme or continental climate. For example, the annual range of rainfall at Kolkata is 119 cm which falls to a low amount of 24 cm in Bikaner.


(b) Winds: the wind that blows from sea to land is called sea breeze and the wind that blow from land to sea is called land breeze. Sea breeze is cooler in comparison to land breeze which is warmer.
