Monsoon And The Economy

The yearly rain provided by the summer monsoon is eagerly anticipated by India and Southeast Asia, due to agricultural crops, hydroelectric plants and even milk-giving cows relying on the downpour.

The summer monsoons affect India’s economy if they are weak or late. If the monsoons are heavy, they cause infrastructural damage and destroy crops.

Apart from the monsoons in Southeast Asia, there is the Asian-Australian monsoon which has a huge wind system that covers Northern Australia, parts of Russia, the Indian Ocean and then finally the Indian Coast of Africa.

The North American Monsoon is also an annual seasonal wind, where warm and moist air from the Gulf of California blows northeast, and from the Gulf of Mexico turns northwest. The winds bring moisture to the region and help with forest fires.

The Moon affects the Earth's climate

The most obvious effect can be seen in the ocean tides. The Earth's rotation causes the Moon's gravity to pull the water on the closest side of Earth towards it, creating a bulge. The centrifugal force caused by the Earth's rotation makes the sea bulge on the other side too. These bulges of water are high tides.

Every 18.6 years, there is a lunar nodal cycle, where the lunar plane tilts away from the equatorial plane, causing tides to grow smaller. When the Moon's orbit is more in line with the Earth equator, the tides are bigger.
