Statistical analysis of rainfall distribution and trend of rainfall anomalies districtwise during monsoon period over West Bengal
Keywords:Moments, Skewness, Kurtosis, Rainfall anomalies, Rainfall trends
The statistical analysis of rainfall distributions in different districts of West Bengal during monsoon period for 68 years (1931-98) have been studied in this paper. The statistical parameters such as moments, coefficient of skewness and kurtosis have been computed to understand the nature of such rainfall distribution in each district. The rainfall anomalies during monsoon period (June–September) have also been studied for each district of two meteorological Sub-divisions, Sub-Himalayan West Bengal (SHWB) and Gangetic West Bengal (GWB) by fitting regression lines through ‘Least Square Method’ and results for rainfall trends for each district of West Bengal have been discussed in this paper.
