My query is about “The seasonal reversal of winds is the typical characteristic of”
1. Monsoon is right no doubt abt it.
2. Mediterranean climate is characterised by Winter Rain(if i m not wrong), so if there is no seasonal reversal of wind then there should be rain whole time. Also because of there are disturbances at the time of winter indirectly caused by jet stream,which change the wind pattern in Mediterranean region.
3. For equator, As we seen in the pattern of monsoon in which because of shifting of ITCZ northward in summer, wind cross equator and change direction(bcome south-westerly) in indian ocean. At the same time, same pattern is observed in Africa and Atlantic ocean and also over midle and north west america(Where we observe monsoon climate). Also this reverses in Winter when ITCZ shifts southwards.
So in practice in all above climatic region there is change in wind pattern.
My belief is this- “If there is continues rain n only seasonal rain then there is reversal of wind pattern(except because of cyclones)”
Please tell me if my assumptions are right or if they are not please clarify my basic understanding of topic.
