World Geography Final Exam Study Guide Topics of interest: The dynamics and significance of South Asia’s Monsoon Every year, monsoons occur in South Asia. The South Asian landmass heats up during the spring, a huge low-pressure system forms above it. The low-pressure system begins to draw in huge volumes of air from over the ocean onto the subcontinent. When the inflow of moist air reaches the land mass, the wet monsoon has arrived. It may rain for 60 days or more. The grass is greener-the region is reborn. Without the annual monsoons, India would face disaster. The nature and significance of state territorial morphology The shape of territories affects all of the conditions in the realm. Compact states are either round or rectangular: which means that it has a max amount of territory within a minimum length of boundary. An example is Cambodia. Protruded states have a compact territory; an example would be Myanmar Elongated states have the length at least 6 times the average width; an example being Vietnam. Fragmented states consist of one or two territorial units that are separated; an example would be Malaysia. The relationship of North and South Korea, its risks and potential North Korea has raw materials that are required by South Korea and South Korea produces food that is needed in North Korea: both North and South Korea rely on each other in some way. Korea is the scene of a devastating power conflict. South and North Korea awaits reunification. The political situation in Korea prevents it from becoming operational to mutual advantage.
