Seasonal Hydro-meteorlogical Print PDF

To compute the aridity index we use Thornthwait method, which is computed from the monthly values of rainfall and evaporation. The evaporation is computed empirically from mean monthly air temperature. In assessing the effectiveness of rainfall, in terms of water availability relationships between the rainfall and air temperature has been worked out in terms of moisture indices. The aridity index values above 128 which shaded in deep green to blue were show wet to very wet moisture condition. Light green to yellow value indicates humid to semi humid and red to brown values show semi arid to arid condition.
