Climate and Ecology

Kanwari is a semi-arid region and agriculture is supported mainly by canals and ground water irrigation. Kanwari lies 2 kilometres (1.2 mi) away from the northeast edge of the Thar Desert. Hot winds, locally known as 'Loo', are strong and frequent from May to July. Intermittent dust storms are common. In the winter some rain is received due to western disturbances.

Kanwari has a continental climate, with very hot summers and relatively cool winters. Summer starts in April and lasts till the middle of October. May is the hottest month, with the maximum day temperatures in the 48 °C (118 °F) range. Hisar experiences a weak monsoon, from late June to September, with about 15 inches (380 mm) of rain. Winter starts in November and is mild and sunny, although temperatures may reach freezing on some nights.

Main ecological issues are desertification, deforestation, encroachment and land grabbing of common Panchayat forest and grazing land called "bani". Deterioration of scant Acacia vegetation on the slopes of stable sand dunes has reactivated the dune building activity. The active and reactivated dunes are Sub-Recent in age.[13]

Southwest of Kanwari is desert, but the rest of the surrounding area is fertile plains. Kanwari has three large ponds: Bada Johad, Jharna, and Mundhala Johad. The fields are irrigated by the Sunder sub-branch extension of the Hansi-Butana branch of the Western Jamuna Canal.

The aeolian deposits at the Southwest of Kanwari comprising accumulation of sand blown from Thar desert of Rajasthan are mostly confined to south-western part of the Bidhwan. These sand accumulations occupy vast stretches of land and occur in the shape of sandy flats, mounds and ridges at places attaining dunal shapes over the sandy flats.[13]

It has, however, experienced earthquakes originating in the great Himalayan boundary fault and the, Hindukush region. The maximum intensity experienced was VI M-M and the Kanwari has been assigned to zone II in seismic zoning map of India where the maximum seismic intensity may reach VI MM.[13]
