Describe any one of the branches of southwest monsoon.
There are two branches of southwest monsoon- ARABIAN SEA BRANCH AND BAY OF BENGAL BRANCH.
The Arabian Sea branch is explained as follows:
This branch of monsoon winds brings heavy rainfall. These winds blow from the Arabian Sea where the first part of the wind strikes the Western Ghats. These winds are moisture laden winds which gives heavy rainfall to western coastal region.
The second part of this wind blows through the Vindhya- Satpura ranges and strikes against the Rajmahal Hills which causes heavy rainfall in the Chotanagpur region.
The third part of the wind moves towards Rajasthan where the Aravalli Mountains stand parallel to the direction of the winds which results in no rain to Rajasthan.
The wind then reaches the Himachal Pradesh and gets combined with the winds of Bay of Bengal.
