Abstract

An attempt has been made to examine the influence of tropical disturbances (i.e., depressions/cyclonic storms) on the rainfall of individual monsoon months and the season as a whole considering the 80 yr record of rainfall and these disturbances over the Indian land area north of 15oN excluding the hilly areas of the country. Individual monsoon months from June to September exhibit a relationship between rainfall and the corresponding frequency of tropical disturbances but the monsoon season taken as a whole does not show any significant relationship. -Authors
