Introduction

Section 1:The Land

Section 2:Climate and Vegetation

Visual Summary

Chapter Menu


A study of the physical geography of South Asia will explain the contrasts between the northern and southern areas of the region and how South Asia’s large populations depend upon the seasonal monsoon rains that sometimes bring devastating consequences.

Chapter Intro 1


Section 1:The Land

Places reflect the relationship between humans and the physical environment. In South Asia’s varied landscapes, large numbers of people depend on the region’s physical environment, river systems, and natural resources for their livelihoods.

Chapter Intro 2


Section 2: Climate and Vegetation

The characteristics and distribution of ecosystems help people understand environmental issues. Seasonal winds in South Asia strongly influence temperature and rainfall, which affect what crops people grow and how people and the environment are affected by too much or too little rain.

Chapter Intro 3

Water Systems

South Asia’s major river systems bring fertile soil to the floodplains, serve as transportation routes, and provide hydroelectricity.

  • Three major river systems:

  • Ganges—most important river in South Asia

  • Brahmaputra

  • Indus

Section 2


Climate Regions

Much of South Asia has tropical climates with ample rainfall and a variety of vegetation; however, the climates vary widely in the north and west, where mountain ranges block rainfall.

  • Tropical regions:

    • Tropical wet

    • Tropical dry

South Asia: Vegetation

A.South

B.North

Section 2


Seasonal Weather Patterns

Seasonal weather patterns bring much-needed rainfall to South Asia, but monsoon winds, as well as other natural disasters, can also bring devastating hardships.

  • Three distinct seasons:

    • Hot

    • Wet

    • Cool

Comparing Climates

Section 2


Seasonal Weather Patterns (cont.)

  • These seasons depend on seasonal winds called monsoons.

  • Temperature and rainfall impact agriculture in the region.

  • Factors:

  • Extreme heat

  • Monsoon winds

Section 2


Seasonal Weather Patterns (cont.)

  • Natural disasters:

  • Flooding from monsoon rains

  • Cyclones

  • Earthquakes

  • Tsunamis
