“The North East experiences rains each year when the core monsoon zone and the Gangetic plain are in a break period,” Murtugudde added. When it is a break period over the North East, it rains over central India or the core monsoon zone. The rains then shifts to gangetic plain.

This see-saw between the North East and central India is expected,” said Raghu Murtugudde, climate scientist at the University of Maryland. <span>“The North East experiences rains each year when the core monsoon zone and the Gangetic plain are in a break period,” Murtugudde added. When it is a break period over the North East, it rains over central India or the core monsoon zone. The rains then shifts to gangetic plain. Heavy rains lash for different reasons in different places of India. Strong south-westerlies produce heavy rains on the west coast, but a combination of south-westerlies and easterlies

Question
The North East has been drying up for a while, especially in the last few decades. During 18 of the last 19 years (2001-2019), North East India has received seasonal rainfall less than normal with an exception of 2007 (110 per cent of normal), according to an IMD report from 2019.

“Our model predicts that movement along phyllosilicate-rich fault zones becomes more difficult as it becomes faster, something that is consistent with experiments,” said Hartog.

This behaviour prevents earthquakes and suggests minerals other than phyllosilicates are important in causing earthquakes, according to Hartog.

“Aila embankments were mostly constructed when Rajib Banerjee was the irrigation minister. Other ministers hardly took interest in settling land and related issues,” said a senior state government official.

Aila embankment is a hybrid of earthen blocks and bricks with a spreading slope built inwards. It requires keeping space for a mangrove buffer in front, which means that it needs more land.

One of the reasons for this was reduced power consumption due to the lockdown to curb the spread of the novel coronavirus (COVID-19). The hydroelectric dam, as a result, is underworked. Another reason is that two of the six generators at Idduki dam are not functioning.

Officials at the Kerala State Electricity Board (KSEB) said they were following the rule curve.
