  • Warming of Bay of Bengal and the Indian Ocean is likely to weaken the India monsoon further in the near future.
  • Most of the studies on Indian monsoon pattern are based on temperature and rainfall variations available with the India Meteorological Department (IMD) since 1901 for land and sea.
  • The study was done as part of the project to build models that can project annual monsoon rainfall for future.
