Abstract

Applying a new criterion, based on the average monthly precipitation, the start and the cessation dates of rains over different parts of India have been determined using data from 466 widely-spread stations. The duration of rains or the rainy season is found to vary from nil to the entire year in some parts of the country. Based on the duration of the rainy season and the amount of precipitation six precipitation zones have been demarcated in the country and the utility of this demarcation for practical purposes is discussed. The relationship between the annual precipitation variability and the duration of the rainy season is also discussed.
