Abstract

Droughts over India were severe in four years: 1877, 1899, 1918 and 1972. Floods over India were severe in three years: 1878, 1892 and 1961. The occurrence of droughts and floods has been found to be random. The only years when none of the regions of India experienced either drought or flood were 1930, 1931 and 1957. Having identified individual years of monsoon rainfall excess and deficit, differences in depression track behaviour and in the location of the moonsoon trough were examined.
