Rainfall type in mountain areas is called what?
Rainfall in mountain areas is called: Orographic rainfall.
The cambrian mountains get a lot of rainfall because they are near the coast of England so the water evaporates when it is warm and as it gets closer to the mountains it condenses and turn into clouds the rain mostly falls on one side of the mountain and less on the other this type of rainfall is called relief rainfall
The 3 types of rainfall is convectional rainfall, relief rainfall and frontal rainfall. Convectional rainfall is when the sun heats the earth, the convection currents rise and forms clouds which then rain and the process starts all over again. Because of the convection currents we call this process convectional rainfall. The second type of rainfall is relief rainfall. When a warm current meets a mountain it goes up and forms a cloud. Then, the rain…
The reason behind leh recieving less rainfall because 1.It lies at the starting point of the himalayas . The himalayas act as a barrier and biforcate the rainfall into two different directions or halves. One part of the monsoons give ranfall to areas above tibet and the other part gives rainfall to India(GANGETIC PLAIN AREA) 2.Leh experiences a continental type of climate i.e it is land locked :)
In areas where there is no snow, runoff will come from rainfall. However, not all rainfall will produce runoff because storage from soils can absorb light showers. Infiltration excess overland flow more commonly occurs in arid and semi-arid regions, where rainfall intensities are high and the soil infiltration capacity is reduced because of surface sealing, or in paved areas. When the soil is saturated and the depression storage filled, and rain continues to fall, the…
This really depends on the type of goat, its age, its stage of production, the type of pasture you have, the amount of rainfall you have in your area for pasture growth and the carrying capacity of your land - it will be different for different areas but it is recommended to not have more than 8 DSE for parasite control.
