Cyclone Burevi

After Cyclone Nivar, another tropical storm named Cyclone Burevi has developed in the southern part of Bay of Bengal. As this new cyclone comes just days after Cyclone Nivar, its impact is set to be more subdued. This is because when consecutive systems develop in the same region of the sea, the first system leads to a process called ‘upwelling’- i.e. cooler water from the deeper parts of the ocean moves towards the upper layer and produce less friendly conditions for cyclones.
