Created with Fabric.js 1.4.5 Monsoons Tectonic Plates Every year South Asia experiences a Dry and a Wet Monsoon. These storms bring much needed water for crops but also bring disaster. Wet Monsoons The Wet Monsoon is the rainier of the two Monsoons. The Wet Monsoon takes place during the summer and travels from the Indian ocean and around the Himalayas. The Monsoon gets water from the Indian Ocean and the Bay of Bengal. The waterbuilds up over time causing floods and other natural disasters such as land slides. This can destroy crops andstructures. This can also slow the transportation making it hard to moveabout the city. Dry Monsoons Dry Monsoons are mostly harsh windswith little rainfall. In Delhi the rain levelis about 15mm in the Dry Monsoon but 180mm in the Wet Monsoon! Crops fail more often in the Dry Monsoon and because of this, income is harder to come by. The Earth's crust is made up of many different parts or plates. These plates are constantly moving and shifting. Every now and then two plates collide or grind against another. From this, thereare manypossibilities. Forexample, an earthquake could occur ora mountain could form. In Southern Asia a mountainous region called the Himalayas was created because the Eurasian and the Indian plate struck against each other. This process spanned over millions of years and now the highest peak reaches 29,000ft! Unfortunately there are many disadvantages to living in such a high area. The elevation makes breathing hard because of the lack of oxygen and temperatures can drop to as low as -76F on the summit. Since the conditions are so harsh, villages and civilization is rare. On top of all that, transportation is extremely difficult because of the steep mountain sides.
