Abstract

Distribution functions for seasonal (southwest monsoon) and annual rainfall at 53 long-record stations in India have been obtained. It was found that the frequency distributions are right skewed. Tests for normality show that while normal distribution gives a good fit to seasonal and annual rainfall at stations in some parts of India it does not give a good fit to seasonal and annual rainfall at stations over the major portion of the country. Tests of goodness of fit of the Gamma distribution, however, clearly indicate that this distribution provides a good fit to seasonal and annual rainfall at stations in different parts of the country.
