Explain any two characteristic features of monsoon winds.

Answer :

Two characteristic features of monsoon winds are:

(a) Uneven distribution of rainfall during the year: the southwest monsoon causes over 80 percent of the rainfall over the country during June to September. The duration of monsoon varies from two to four months. At some parts of the country there is very heavy rainfall whereas in other parts there is less or scanty rainfall.


(b) Influence of mountains: the rainfall is very much influence by the mountains. The wind brings very less rainfall over Gujarat and Rajasthan due to absence of mountains. Along the west coast, the winds strike the Western Ghats and bring heavy rainfall on the windward side.
