Abstract

An examination of daily rainfall data and other rainstorm studies have shown that about 231 severe rainstorms affected India during the period 1880-1990. This study is an extension of the previous study made by Dhar and Nandargi. This study, with specified locations of frequent rain centres and a large sample of 231 severe rainstorms, has confirmed the existence of the four rainstorm zones found earlier and has also found small zones in south-east Rajasthan and along the east and west coasts of India. It has also specified locations of frequent rain centres during severe rainstorms.
