Abstract

A monsoon is a (wind) pattern that reverses direction on a seasonal basis. The term was originally applied to monsoonal winds in the Arabian Sea and Indian Ocean. The word is also used to label the season in which this wind blows from the southwest in India and adjacent areas that are characterized by very heavy rainfall, and specifically the rainfall that is associated with this wind. As monsoons have become better understood, the definition has been broadened to include almost all of the phenomena associated with the annual weather cycle within the tropical and subtropical continents of Asia, Australia, and Africa, and the adjacent seas and oceans. It is within these regions that the most vigorous and dramatic cycles of weather events on Earth take place.
