    Russia - Russia - Climate: Several basic factors determine Russia’s variable climates. The country’s vast size and compact shape—the great bulk of the land is more than miles ( km) from the sea, while certain parts lie as much as 1, miles (2, km) away—produce a dominance of continental regimes. The country’s northerly latitude ensures that these are cold . Climatology (from Greek κλίμα, klima, "place, zone"; and -λογία, -logia) or climate science is the scientific study of climate, scientifically defined as weather conditions averaged over a period of time. This modern field of study is regarded as a branch of the atmospheric sciences and a subfield of physical geography, which is one of the Earth sciences.

      Rainfall is the amount of water falling in rain, snow, etc., within a given time and area, usually expressed as a hypothetical depth of coverage. Three types of rainfall are: Convectional rainfall, this type of rainfall occur due to thermal convention due to heating of ground the land warms up, it heats the air above it. This causes the air to .   In the hierarchical structure of life, the world's biomes are composed of all of the ecosystems on the tems are inclusive of both living and nonliving material in an environment. The animals and organisms in a biome have adapted to .

      Land use and land cover (LULC) change has been shown to have significant effect on climate through various pathways that modulate land surface temperature and rainfall. However, few studies have. The rainfall distribution throughout the months of the year is also very irregular. Thus, as in a normal rainfall pattern, the maximum seasonal rainfall is .

London, J. Murray, Climate - Climate - World distribution of precipitation: The yearly precipitation averaged over the whole Earth is about cm (39 inches), but this is distributed very unevenly. The regions of highest rainfall are found in the equatorial zone and the monsoon area of Southeast Asia.

Middle latitudes receive moderate amounts of precipitation, but little falls in the desert regions of the. 1 day ago  Both the transportation of water vapor by atmospheric circulation and the distribution of rain are sensitive to differences between ocean and land temperatures.

rainfall in November over East. To quantitatively investigate the rainfall distribution on the VI variations, the rainfall distribution indices were calculated for each year based on the proposed methodology of Monti and Venturi () (Table ).

They suggested an integrated application of ER, UR, and A d for improving the analysis of yearly rainfall data.

These indices aim. The average rainfall in India is cm. The South-west monsoon constituted 75% of the total rainfall (June to September), 13% of it by north-east monsoon (October to. Time distribution relations have been developed for heavy storms on areas ranging up to square miles and presented in probability terms to provide quantitative information on interstorm variability and to provide average and extreme relations for various applications of the findings.

1 day ago  According to research led by The University of Texas at Austin, seasonal rainfall is expected to rise significantly in East Africa over the next few decades in response to increased greenhouse gases.

India has been experiencing a deficit in Monsoon in the last few years. Due to climate change uneven distribution of rainfall causing drought and floods like situation in many part of the country. As depicted in Table 2, summer is the major rain season in the study area which contributes about % of the total rainfall (where nearly 56% comes only in two months: July and August while June and September contributed and percent of the summer rainfall respectively) which clearly revealed the presence of high concentration of.

Rainfall Temporal Distribution. The temporal rainfall distribution is how rainfall intensity varies over time for a single event. The mass rainfall curve, illustrated in Figureis the cumulative precipitation up to a specific time. It provides suitable conditions for many types of ecosystems, as well as water for hydroelectric power plants and crop irrigation.

Rainfall is a determinant factor of many natural occurrences. Vegetation distribution and type of land masses are as a result of rainfall (Ronen and Avinoam, ;Tielborger and Kadmon,; Shukla et al, ). Climate change and rainfall variation pose serious risks to rain-fed agricultural land use in the semi-dry agro-ecological zones of Africa.

Rainfall variability has significantly impacted on the rural poor (Allamano et. al., ) who rely most on natural rainfall for land tillage and crop production.

The impacts vary from. Rain water lost by run-off may be pumped back and re-used at the site where it was received (C), or it may be used elsewhere downstream (C). In overall water development planning this latter amount of surface run-off still remains part of effective rainfall.

Some rain water stagnates on the soil surface (C3). High rain totals are represented in dark blue, while small rainfall totals are shown in white.

TRMM measures rainfall in the tropics. High-latitude regions, where TRMM does not record rainfall, are gray. The most obvious pattern in the total rainfall maps is seasonal change. A band of heavy rain moves north and south of the Equator seasonally. Rain days and extreme rainfalls The frequency of rain days (defined as days when mm or more of rainfall is recorded in a hour period) is greatest near the southern Australian coast, exceeding rain days per year in much of Tasmania, southern Victoria and the far south-west of Western Australia, peaking at over per year in western Tasmania.

rain: Distribution of Rainfall Enter your search terms: One of the primary elements in climate and a factor of tremendous importance in the distribution of plant and animal life, rainfall varies from less than an inch annually in a desert to more than in.

(1, cm) where the monsoons strike the Khasi hills in Assam, India, and on the. In dry farming areas, where rainfall is the only source of water for crops, changes in both quantity and distribution of rainfall during the year could affect the economy of an area.

Inter-annual variability makes it difficult to assess rainfall variability, especially in areas with Mediterranean climate. In this paper, interannual rainfall variations in the Alt Penedès region were evaluated.

NORMAL RAINFALL. An important tool for QPF forecasters is knowledge of the normal monthly rainfall of the local area and its spatial distribution. Normal rainfall for a specific station is determined from averaging the past thirty years of data every ten years, i.e.and.
