Down to Earth - - LETTERS - Fol­low Us: @down2earth­in­dia @dtemagazine

When we talk of freak weather events, western dis­tur­bances come to mind. In the past few years, they have been linked to floods, cloud­bursts and land­slides. In "Ides of March" (1-15 April, 2015), Down To Earth noted, "Ac­cord­ing to a state­ment ...on March 19, crops in over five mil­lion hectares have been dam­aged. But de­spite the de­struc­tion the dis­tur­bances have been caus­ing, there have been very few stud­ies to un­der­stand them."
