Abstract

The structure functions of monthly (June to September), seasonal (monsoon season) and annual rainfall field over Vidarbha have been evaluated over the four quadrants of the area. The structure function of the rainfall field is neither homogeneous nor isotropic over the whole area, however, it is approximately isotropic and homogeneous over the western and eastern Vidarbha portions separately. Relationships between the error of linear interpolation and distance have been established and from these the maximum spacings allowed between the raingauges for a specified tolerable error have been obtained for the months June to September, for the monsoon season and for the year.
