Anamudi Peak in Kerala, with a height of 2,695 m above sea level,is the highest peak of peninsular India. There is also an urgent need to understand the impacts of climate change at the micro and macro levels for better planning. The Deccan Plateau is higher in the west and slopes gently eastwards. The plateau covers a vast majority of the Southern and central parts of the country. Family Common Name Species Name Glareolidae Jerdon's courser Rhinoptilus bitorquatus An asterisk signifies that the species' range is limited to this ecoregion.

Some paleontologists think that this eruption may have enhanced the extinction of the dinosaurs. Here, irrigation is not offered as a technological solution, but as part of a more comprehensive package of processes and inputs.
Rainfall Monthly rainfall data is shown on the Figure right. Also, groundwater recharge is high in northern India because of better storage capacity, whereas in southern India, which has lower storage capacity, most of the recharge water ends up as base flow, he said. After describing the contemporary environment and climate, the chapter outlines paleoclimate research from diverse data sources and describes the current synthetic view of the late Holocene climate, which challenges previously accepted models for understanding human—environment interactions in the Deccan Chalcolithic period. These mountain ranges rise from their respective nearby coastal plains and nearly meet at the southern tip of India. Himalayan rivers are perenial ri … vers as they drain through out the year by getting water from rainfall in rain season and melting of glaciers in summer. A plateau doesn't have peaks and valleys like a mountain range: it's a flat surface.

At higher altitudes, as in the Western Ghats and the Himalayas, temperatures are considerably cooler. Comprising the northeastern part of the Deccan Plateau, the Telangana Plateau has an area of about 148,000 km2, a north-south length of about 770 km, and an east-west width of about 515 km. This map of India shows the height of the land. All Deccan plateau rivers depend on rains and dry up in the summers. Mountains are high up above the sea, but they're very jagged with lots of ups and downs.
Temperatures in the southern peninsula are somewhat lower, averaging 35° to 40°C 95° to 104°F. The eastern coastal plain is much broader and marked by the of the Godavari, Mahanadi, and Kaveri rivers. Lianas drape the trees in mature forests, but the undergrowth is sparse Puri at al. Rain and snow fall in abundance on the entire Himalayan range. Before the Deccan Traps region was reduced to its current size by and , it is estimated that the original area covered by the flows was as large as 1. It is a diverse area located south of the Gangetic plains. Several sacred groves containing evergreen forests in the state of Andhra Pradesh make an important contribution to conservation and to the ecoregion's diversity.
Since it cooled relatively slowly, it has large visible crystals. Climate in the Plateaus : The summer is hot and dry in these regions. It is marked on its western and eastern edges by western and eastern ghats respectively. Unless you want to go skiing which is possible in India! In fact, the eruptions that formed the Deccan traps were so big that they might have been part of the reason why the dinosaurs all died. Rawat, Ajay Desai, Hema Somanathan, and Eric D. These northern ranges separate the plateau from the heavily populated riverine plains of northern India.
The Deccan Plateau is a triangular landmass lying southwards of the river Narmada. The river valley areas of the plateau tend to be densely populated, as there is ample access to water and the climate is conducive to living. They form wide ,large fertile plains along their course. But although these degradation threats nibble away at the intact forests, large hydroelectric projects present more severe, high-impact threats Davis et al. Recent ecodevelopment and habitat restoration efforts in this tiger reserve have proved successful in bringing back the dwindling tiger population. It includes the western extent of the Satpura Range of hills within the northern extent.
There is evidence of prehistoric human habitation; low rainfall must have made farming difficult until the introduction of irrigation. Over 300 million people live in the greater area of the Deccan Plateau. The three large cities in the Deccan are Hyderabad the capital of Telangana, Bangalore the capital of Karnataka and Pune, the cultural hub of Maharashtra. This species was rediscovered in 1986, after the last record in 1900 Grimmet et al. The Eastern and Western Ghats meet at the southern end of the plateau, forming one corner of the triangle.
