Abstract

The spatial variations of these regions are studied using annual rainfall data of 306 well-distributed stations for the 114-year period from 1871 to 1984. The distribution characteristics are studied by determining positions of different moisture regions for sufficiently large probabilities using an average probability diagram (APD), which presents variation of the annual rainfall expected with specified exceedance/non-exceedance probabilities with the variation of the mean annual rainfall over India. It is noticed that boundaries of different moisture regions fluctuate in space along with the annual rainfall over India. During all-India below-normal rainfall years dry regions spread into wet regions, whereas the reverse is the case during above-normal rainfall years.
