A theoretical study regarding heterogeneity of Rainfall over Madhya Maharashtra
While studying the normal rainfall over different districts in Madhya Maharashtra a line of delineation running north-south across the districts was suggested by Mukherjee et al. (1979 1980), This line roughly distinguishes the rainfall distribution in the talukas to the east and the talukas to the east during the months of July and August. In the present paper an effort is made to explain theoretically this heterogeneity of rainfall on both sides of the line of delineation. A two dimensional model for orographic rainfall developed by Sarker (1967) was used for this study. This study shows that the line of delineation roughly coincides with the place where rainfall due to orography becomes nearly zero in the lee side of the Western Ghats.
