Abstract

Indian subcontinent experiences tropical disturbances from the neighbouring seas during the monsoon season every year. These disturbances generally cause widespread and moderate-to-heavy rainfall over the region through which they travel. Occassionally, these disturbances cause intense rainstorms which in turn produce severe flooding in the river basins of that region. An attempt has been made to study the occurrence of those tropical disturbances which move in close succession to one another along with their associated heavy rainstorms. This study may be useful to food forecasters, design engineers, for estimating floods and for the development of water resources.
