Abstract

The year 1987 was a severe drought year for India due to failure of summer monsoon over most of the country except for the seven sub-divisions of northeast India which received above normal rainfall. In the monsoon season of 1987, extreme floods in Bangladesh were caused by cross-border floods of three Indian rivers, namely the Brahmaputra. the Ganga and the Meghana and due to heavy monsoon rains over Bangladesh. This study has also confirmed that in some years, during summer monsoon season, there is an inverse relationship between rainfall over northeast India and rest of India.
