Rainfall analysis is one of the important components in hydrological processes for either using it as a random chance constrained input or for taking a risk at certain level for crop planning. Present study made an attempt to understand the rainfall scenario of Anantapur district, through use of descriptive statistics, trend analysis [Mann-Kendall (or Modified Mann-Kendall) test, Sen’s-slope method] and distribution of rainfall for monthly, seasonal and annual rainfall of the Anantapur district during the period from 1985 to 2021. It was revealed that the highest average rainfall was reported in September (112.01) which ranges 15.93 to 244.07, while the least average was observed in January (1.99), which indicated that the months of January and September were the extreme precipitation months of the district. From the Mann-Kendall and Sen’s slope estimator, it was resulted that the probability value was found to be significant with increasing trend for June (1.12), South-West Monsoon (3.52) and Annual (6.84) rainfall series. Based on Goodness of fit criterion, Log-Normal (3P) was identified as appropriate distribution for South-West monsoon of Anantapur district and it was found that probability of getting rainfall more than 100, 200 and 300 were identified as 96.4%, 80.4% and 49.6% respectively.Pages: 39-46 | Views: 105 | Downloads: 10Download Full Article: Click Here
