Global Warming and Indian Monsoon

It has been observed since 1979 that there is a heterogeneous increase in the tropospheric temperature across the globe. The rise in tropospheric temperature over selected climatic zones during the period 1949-1978 is as follows - the equator +0.45°C, the north polar +0.60°C, the north subtropic +0.32°C, the south subtropic +0.77°C and the south polar region +0.66°C, recording a higher increase in the polar regions as compared to the equator. Consequently, a decrease in the tropospheric temperature gradient from equator...
