South-west monsoon dominated eastern India has considerable variation of rainfall occurrences through time. Being a state of eastern India, West Bengal is not an exception in this case with its vast areal extent (88,752 sq. km.). This is a state of vast physiographic and climatic differences. Keeping these things in mind, present study focuses on the trend analysis of rainfall over all the districts of West Bengal for the 20 th century. Mann-Kendall trend statistics is used to show the trend…
