The Winter Monsoon

These two views show the fairly clear conditions that prevail
over northern India and Bangladesh during the winter monsoon.
The Khasi Hills (1) and Brahmaputra River (2) can be seen in both
views. The top view, looking southwest into central India, taken
about two and a half months after the end of the summer monsoon,
shows the main channels of the Brahmaputra still maintaining a
good flow of water. The bottom view, which looks northward into
Tibet, taken over four months after the end of the summer mon-
soon, shows many of the main channels of the Brahmaputra with
little or no water in their channels. Large sand or silt banks
have appeared. (S09-49-2265--a, 51C-42-086--b)
