India, officially the Republic of India occupies the greater part of South Asia, and its capital is New Delhi. About one-sixth of the world’s total population live in India, the second most populous country, after China.[1]


Based on weather records spanning 1951 through 2020 the Dartmouth Flood Observatory and the India Meteorological Department found that the amount of atmospheric river events impacted the country 596 times, 95% of which occurred during a monsoon season, with 54% of the largest atmospheric river events occurred over the past three decades, thus forming more often and getting bigger. Warmer ocean surface temperatures over parts of the Indian Ocean have led to more evaporation, providing more rain when ARs form.[2][3]
