Monthly, Seasonal and Annual Rainfall Time Series for All-India, Homogeneous Regions and Meteorological Subdivisions: 1871-2016

In this scientific research report, monthly, seasonal and annual area weighted rainfall time series for all-India, 5 homogeneous regions and 30 meteorological subdivisions for the period 1871-2016 are constructed on the basis of a fixed and well distributed network of 306 rain gauge stations over India. Summer monsoon rainfall percentage departure series for all-India, homogeneous regions and all the subdivisions have been plotted indicating the excess, deficit and normal monsoon years. The statistical characteristics of the series i.e. Mean, Standard Deviation, Trend for different periods (1871-2016: Entire period and 1981-2016 : Recent period) are also shown in the diagrams.
