Give a geographical reason:
Effect of mass movement will be greater along the western slope of the Sahyadri's than the eastern slope.
Effect of the mass movement will be greater along the western slope of the Sahyadri's than the eastern slope because -
- The western slope of the Sahyadri's is steeper than the eastern slopes.
- The western slopes receive more rainfall than the eastern slopes as a result mass movement is greater in western slopes than eastern slopes.
- Also, the rivers as an agent of erosion are short and swift on the western slope and thus rapid mass movement is found as compared to the eastern coast.
