Abstract

Universal inverse power law distribution of rainfall in the Indian region

Author(s): A.M.Selvam

Space-time fluctuations of meteorological parameters exhibit selfsimilar fractal fluctuations. A general systems theory developed by the author predicts universal inverse power law form incorporating the golden mean for the fractal fluctuations. The monthly total rainfall for the Indian region for the period 1871 to 2011 (141 years) was analysed. The model predicted distribution is in close agreement with observed fractal fluctuations of all size scales. The results of the study are presented.
