Q2 What is El-Nino? How is it associated with Indian monsoon ? 5M

Answer:

El Nino is a climatic phenomenon/complex weather system that causes a warm water current near the Peruvian coast, occurring every three to seven years. Since this stream appears in December at the time of Christmas, it is also known as ‘Child Christ’.

El Nino has an adverse effect on the Indian monsoon. Due to El Nino, the air pressure near the Peruvian coast becomes lower than normal, the force pushing the south-east trade winds from here gets weakened. Instead, the attracting or pulling force of the trade winds becomes effective here. Due to this, the flow of these trade winds towards Asia also becomes weak.

As a result, the Indian monsoon becomes weak and rainfall is received late and below average.

Q3 What are the major types of soil found in India? Discuss their characteristics. 10M

Different types of relief, landforms, climatic zones and vegetation are found in India, which have contributed to the development of many types of soils in India.
