      Although the precise cause of the monsoons is not fully understood, no one disputes that air pressure is one of the primary factors. The Australian monsoon the "Wet" occurs in the southern summer when the monsoon trough develops over Northern Australia. Black carbon combines, in the brown cloud, with sulfates and other aerosols—and the Indo-Gangetic Plain bears an additional burden in this respect, as a result of pockets of intensive industrial and extractive activity. Their contributions span the natural and social sciences and apply state of the art techniques for understanding the earth: satelite remote sensing, geographic information sytems, modeling and advanced computing. There are actually two monsoons in India: the winter, or northeastern, monsoon; and the summer, or southwestern, monsoon. They predict, that is to say, that the moist monsoon lands will see an increase in rainfall.

      The wet monsoons, which begins almost suddenly in June, are especially important to India, Bangladesh, and Myanmar Burma. CrossRef Google Scholar 3. They start as a huge amount of wet, hot air over the sea, arising upwards and forming huge cloud towers. Summer temperatures in Arizona regularly reach more than degrees Fahrenheit, making wildfire s difficult to contain.

The large, black Indian ants become frantic in their search for food, massing over the scorched earth with a collective desperation. The rain occurs in a concentrated belt that stretches east-west except in East China where it is tilted east-northeast over Korea and Japan.

Crops reflect more solar radiation than forests, which tend to absorb it; the greater reflexivity of land planted with crops makes it cooler, once again weakening the temperature differentials that drive circulation and rainfall.

Yet, the book is a very valuable addition to the rather small collection of literature on Earth System Science and its contents will be of interest to scientists from biophysical, technological and socio-economic disciplines. Klwuer Academic Publishers,pp.
