Climatological Studies

Back to Agrimet Division's Research Activities

Detailed climatological studies of weather elements viz. rainfall, evaporation etc. were conducted. Rainfall analysis for agriculture has been done and maps are prepared on a weekly, monthly, seasonal, annual basis. Assured rainfall i.e. amount of rainfall at different probability levels, has been computed. Analysis of duration/distribution of dry and wet spells using Markov Chain model has been done for most of the states. Soil moisture data has been analysed for its use in irrigation. The Division has done intensive work on agroclimatic classifications.
