SummaryThe Indian rainfall has often been used as a proxy data for the Asian monsoon as a whole for understanding the energy budget of the major circulation features and also used as an input parameter in estimating the other regional parameters. In view of this, a long homogeneous rainfall series of All-India (India taken as one unit) has been prepared based on a fixed and well distributed network of 306 raingauge stations over India by giving proper area-weightage. This paper contains a… 
In this study monthly rainfall data for 14 stations over Bangladesh for the period 1901-1977 are used to investigate and understand the interannual variability of the summer monsoon rainfall.
Is summer monsoon rainfall over the west coast of India decreasing?
In this study, long‐term changes in the summer monsoon rainfall over the west coast of India and adjoining eastern Arabian Sea (WCA) have been examined independently using rain gauge adjusted
Trends in the rainfall pattern over India
New monthly, seasonal and annual rainfall time series of 36 meteorological subdivisions of India were constructed using the monthly rainfall data for the period 1901–2003 of fixed network of 1476
Intra-seasonal, inter-annual and decadal scale variability in summer monsoon rainfall over India
Using daily rainfall data for the 30-year period of 1960-1989 and following an objective criterion, the pre-active, active and post-active phases of the summer monsoon (June-September) rainfall are
New spatial and temporal indices of Indian summer monsoon rainfall
The overall yearly seasonal performance of Indian southwest monsoon rainfall (ISMR) for the whole Indian land mass is presently expressed by the India Meteorological Department (IMD) by a single
Anomalous changes in summer monsoon rainfall and crop yields over India
The variability in summer monsoon rainfall along with the summer maximum and winter minimum temperatures are studied with reference to the global tele-connections of ENSO for a period of 1871 to 2004
Possible teleconnections of winter rainfall in southern Brazil with Indian monsoon activity
SummaryThree homogeneous subregions of rainfall anomaly are identified in southern Brazil from the precipitation data for the months of June to September for the period 1960–1993. The area average
The Interannual variability of rainfall over homogeneous regions of Indian summer monsoon
The Indian subcontinent, due to its enormous variety of geographical features, is associated with inhomogeneity. Hence, in the present study, we have classified the whole Indian subcontinent into
Comparative Study of Monsoon Rainfall Variability over India and the Odisha State
Indian summer monsoon (ISM) plays an important role in the weather and climate system over India. The rainfall during monsoon season controls many sectors from agriculture, food, energy, and water,
Summer monsoon rainfall trends in the Indian Himalayan region
Impacts of the changing climatic regime on the trends of Indian summer monsoon rainfall (ISMR) are explored in this study for the Indian Himalayan region (IHR). The analysis is carried out for the


Construction of All-India Summer Monsoon Rainfall Series for the Period 1844–1991
Abstract An all-India summer monsoon rainfall series for the instrumental period of 1844–1991 has been constructed using a progressively increasing station density to 1870, and one that is fixed
Indian summer monsoon rainfall indices : 1871-1990
The paper describes some homogenous representations of the Indian summer monsoon rainfall for the period 1871-1990, prepared on the basis of a fixed and well-distributed network of 306 rain-gauges.
Vagaries of Indian monsoon rainfall and its relation- ships with regional/global circulations
Attempts have been made to understand the behaviour of the monsoon rains for which excellent data sets are available covering the period of 1871-1988. There are two discontinuities (sudden or abrupt
Some Features of a Long Homogeneous Series of Indian Summer Monsoon Rainfall
Abstract A long rainfall series for the contiguous Indian region for the summer monsoon season (June-September), when more than 75% of the annual rainfall occurs over large parts of the country, has
Macro‐regional definition and characteristics of Indian summer monsoon rainfall, 1871–1985
A case is made for regional-scale Indian summer monsoon rainfall data and analysis, intermediate between the widely used all-India and meteorological subdivision data sets. Macro-regional units are
Fluctuations in All-India summer monsoon rainfall during 1871–1978
Analysis of the All-India summer monsoon (June to September) rainfall for the period 1871 to 1978 has been made in order to understand the interannual and long-term variability of the monsoon. On a
Trends and periodicities in sub-divisional rainfall
The monthly and annual rainfall data for 35 meteorological sub-divisions for the 87-year period (1901-1987) have been used to study the trends and periodicities of monsoon and annual rainfall series.
Decadal trends in climate over India
Decadal variations of meteorological parameters, vig, temperature (surface air maximum temperature, minimum temperature and upper air up to middle troposphere), station level pressure and seasonal
Variations in meteorological floods during summer monsoon over India
In this study, rainfall data of 31 mteorological sub-divisioins in India for 113 years (1875-1987) have been used to develop a flood index and statistical properties of the Index are discussed.
