Abstract

The rainfall data, for the period 1901–69, of three stations in the region downwind of the urban industrial complex at Bombay and of two stations in the nearby non-urban region, have been analyzed. The study has indicated that, with respect to the non-urban region, the region downwind of the urban industrial complex recorded an increase of rainfall by about 15%, significant at less than the 1% level, during 1941–69 which is the period of increased industrialization.
