Abstract

Association between the all-India summer monsoon (June to September) rainfall and an index of the Southern Oscillation (SO) is studied in relation to the vagaries of the monsoon rainfall and the seasonal characteristics of the SO. The SOI values of different months and standard seasons show opposite tendencies during deficient and excess years of all-India monsoon rainfall. The correlation coefficients between the all-India monsoon rainfall series and the SOIs of summer monsoon, autumn and winter minus spring seasons are significant at the 1 per cent level.
