Abstract

Several characteristics of the SW monsoon rainfall of the low latitude stations of Cochin (coastal) and Minicoy (island) have been studied using the hyetograms of these stations for the 10yr period 1973-1982. Both stations exhibit diurnal variations of rainfall with maximum activity in the post-midnight hours and minimum in the afternoon hours. The amplitude of the diurnal variation increases for rain events of increasing intensities. The integrated duration of the seasonal rainfall is about 250h at Cochin and 110h at Minicoy. Half the total rain from heavy falls is received in a 5th of the total duration; half the total duration accounts for only a 5th of the total rain from light falls.
