About Bangalore

sset has left a new comment on your post "Temperature in Mumbai has dropped over the century...":

On opposite side, Bangalore has recorded 2-3 degrees increase in temperature. This is due to removal of all trees, lakes and water bodies disappearance. Huge growth in population, huge buildings coming up, massive growth of city, lack of rain is making Bangalore worst city. It should be noted city ranks high on pollution as city has largest number of vehicles.

South West Monsoon -2009 is a very very interesting point to ponder

Recently When I was at Annaikatty village in Coimbatore district the local people and frinds there reported that elephants from the western side of western ghats visit Anaikatty area very often and even the intrude unto 'THADAGAM, a village at the foot hills and close to Coimbatore city. TN Foresters were warrented.
Foresters may not able to resolve it. However one Adivasi told me that it is the SW monsonnal moist wind blowing from south direction [in Tamilnadu during SW monsoon period] invites the elephants to invade eastern slope. He further told that there is nothing to do with the blockage of ELEPHANT CORRIDOR, as reported by the TN Forest officials, but it is a change in the monsoonal wind pattern, he said. it may be true.
[2] The HEAT LOW which is responsible for the SW monsoon wind to advance further into NORTH INDIA / NW India lies in a town called Jacabobath [which is in Pakistan]The traditional monsonal trough line from there to Head bay is not prominent most of the time.
[3] The western flank of Mascerene High is not extended upto 60 DEG East and it is weak [as per Met reports]
[4] The Bay is relatively active than the Arabian sea.
[5] Four or Five years back, parts of the THAR desert was flooded and water stagnated to a depth of 20 ft. This prevented land heating.
