Monsooner or later

This week we delve into Monsoons: what they are, where they happen, and how they affect people's lives. Find out where the wettest place in the world is, why it rained so much in Pakistan but scorched in Russia and how scientists figure out how much rain fell. Plus, in our first listener question, we turn our gaze to August sunsets...are they really more vibrant? Also a news story about how cold (or warm) last year was.

Learn more about tipping bucket rain gauges and distrometers.
