On the intensity and areal coverage of the northeast monsoon Rains in the districts of Madras State
In this paper an attempt is made to establish the relationship between the intensity of rainfall recorded by the India Meteorological Department Observatories in the Madras State during the northeast monsoon season and intensity and areal coverage of rainfall in the districts in which the observatories are situated. The daily rainfall recorded at the large number of provincial raingauge stations in the State during a period of five years, has been analysed for this purpose and the analysis shows that associated with the occurrence of different intensities of rain at the Observatory stations, herein called the 'Pilot' station, the district receives certain well defined types of rainfall.
A number of other features of the intensity and areal coverage of the northeast monsoon rains in Madras State are also brought out in the paper.
