Abstract

All the 141 severe cyclonic storms which struck the Arakan Coast of Burma and the coasts of Bangla Desh, E. India and Sri Lanka during the period 1877-1977 have been considered in this study. Swed and Eisenhart's runs test for runs above and below the median to detect trend or oscillation and Mann-Kendall Rank Statistic test for randomness were applied to the time interval between successive severe cyclonic storms which struck the coast. The results of these tests suggest that this interval can be generally taken to be random.-from Authors
