This has been done by selecting one meteorological sub-division, from each of the climatic type, viz., per-humid, humid, sub-humid (dry and moist), semi-arid and arid regions. Expected length of climatic cycles, that is, drought spell followed by a non-drought spell and vice versa, have also been computed and discussed.</p>}, number={3}, journal={MAUSAM}, author={CHOWDHURY, A. and ABHYANKAR, V.
