The seasonal wind that typically brings heavy rainfall to South Asia is known as:

a. tsunami

b. typhoon

c. hurricane

d. monsoon

Monsoons:

A monsoon is defined as a seasonal wind that usually occurs in tropical areas and lasts for months. It used to be characterized by consistent precipitation changes and is currently used to refer to the seasonal alterations in precipitation and the atmospheric circulation linked to the land and sea's asymmetric heating. An excellent example of the monsoon is experienced over the Indian subcontinent.

Answer and Explanation: 1

The correct answer is choice D, monsoon. The monsoon winds' occurrence typically roams the southern part of Asia from June through September. The monsoons are quite anticipated in the South Asian region. They depict an economically significant pattern annually even though they are extremely challenging to predict and are only partly understood. Monsoons are primarily caused by the variance in land and sea warming trends, though there might be other factors. Seasonal weather changes are small in the sea, but large on land and monsoons blow from cold areas with high atmospheric pressure to warm regions where the atmospheric pressure is low. Thus, they blow from land to sea in winter and from sea to land during summer.
