Rainfall to increase over next 100 years
Part of: GS Prelims –Geography and GS-I- Natural phenomena
IISC research tells:
- Indian monsoon rainfall increased from the last glacial maximum to the present
- Increasing temperatures result in increase in water vapour in the atmosphere, which causes an increase in the quantum of rainfall.
- Concentration of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere going up, resulting in more water vapour, rainfall is expected to increase in the next 100 years.
