|Title: Weather Diary 29 July 1861|
Concept: The Wettest Place on Earth?
Detail: Cherrapunji, India is one of the those places that every
meteorologist knows because it has a record of being perhaps the wettest
place on earth. During July, 1861 an impressive 336.14 inches of rain
descended. Clearly the summer monsoon in India brought more than ample precipitation in 1861.
In other years when the monsoon rain fails, widespread
drought causes crop failure, and famine can result.
