 Indian summer monsoon is considered as an ocean-land-atmosphere coupled phenomenon and also of global nature. In present study, the distribution of mean monthly surface parameters within 0° N – 40° N / 40° E – 100° E region during the two representative months of summer monsoon, July and August,  in both deficient years (1982, 1987) and excess years (1983, 1988) was taken up to understand the behaviour of monsoon during two contrasting situations. Apart from this, the distribution of lower tropospheric zonal winds viz., 850 hPa and 700 hPa levels during July, August months, 500 hPa geopotential heights for the months of January, May, July and August months studied to assess the influence of tropospheric westerlies and  activity of Western Disturbances on the summer monsoon. The results discussed.
