  1. 1. Juan Ignacio Ramirez Lucas Cuis
  2. 2.  At certain times of the year, some areas of the tropics have a period of torrential rain known as a monsoon.  The heavy rain can cause severe flooding,some people rely on the rain for survival.  In fact, the start of the rainy season is often welcomed with celebreations.
  3. 3.  The word monsoon comes from an Arabic word wich means “season”.  It refers to the rainy season and to the seasonal winds that cause it.  During the dry season, the land is cooler than the ocean, and so dry winds blow from the land to the ocean.
  4. 4.  The rainy season occurs when the Sun is almost directly overhead.  The land is hotter than the ocean , so moist winds rush in from the ocean.  As the winds rise and cool, they shed their moisture as haeavy rain.
  5. 5.  Monsoons ocurr in certain parts of the tropics, particulary in southeast Asia.  Monsoon regions have three season – A long cool dry season, a hot humid season when the land is very dry, and a rainy season when there are thunderstrorms on most days.
  6. 6.  During the rainy season, it rains very heavily and there are strong winds.  You can see how strong the winds are by the way the trees are blowing
  7. 7.  In the monsoons the farming had to be vegetals or fruits that grow in wet conditions  Rice in particular needs lots of water to grow. The seedlings are planted during the monsoon season in flooded fields called paddy fields  Rice is an important food for many poor nations, becouse it’can be grown cheaply and in large quantities.
  8. 8.  Too little rain in the monsoons season can be disastrous, resulting in crop failure and possibly famine.
  9. 9.  A number of serious diseases spread easily after the monsoon season, because stagnat flood water provides an ideal breeding ground for the bacteria that causes them.  Typhoid and cholera are particulary common.  Mosquitoes, insects wich can carry diseases such as malaria and yellow fever, also thrive in the warm, wet conditions of monsoons regions.
