Goa, a petite state located on the west coast of the Peninsular India, is bestowed with nine major rivers of which the Mandovi and the Zuari rivers are the major and important rivers from irrigation and hydropower point of view. Spatial and temporal variation of rainfall in these basins has great influence on water resources of the state. In view of this, on the basis of available monthly rainfall data from 1901-2012 and daily rainfall data for the period of 2001-2012 for the stations located in north and south districts of Goa were analysed to review the mean monthly, seasonal and annual rainfall intensity, trends and its spatial distribution; severe rainstorms and their raindepths for different durations. The analysis will be important in water planning projects especially, for irrigation, hydropower and flood control, etc. for the Goa state.
