Fractal analysis: Annual rainfall in Chennai
Keywords:Fractals, Lyapunov exponent, Rainfall, Kaplan-Yorke Dimension
The annual rainfall data of Chennai is analyzed using the Fractal Construction Technique. According to Mandelbrot the dimension of any line including nautical lines may not be Euclidean but Fractional, Mandelbrot, 1982. This fractional dimension leads to a repetitive appearance of any pattern. Climate which is usually periodic by nature can be analyzed through this technique. Efforts are on to search the fractal geometry of climate and to predict its periodicity on different temporal scales. This paper estimates the various parameters like Lyapunov exponent, Maximum Lyapunov characteristic exponent, Lyapunov time, Kaplan-Yorke dimension for the annual rainfall of Chennai.
