Decadal variations of rainfall patterns in Thanjavur district using GIS
The climate of Thanjavur can be termed as a fairly healthy one like other coastal areas. November to February is the pleasant months in a year with climate full of warm days and cool nights. From March onwards, the climate rather becomes sultry and the mercury shoot-up and reaches its peak by the end of May and June depending upon the onset of summer rain. The conventional method of analyzing seasonal and annual rainfall pattern has been adopted to bring out the salient features of rainfall distribution of the study area. The monthly rainfall data for the 13 Rain gauge stations located in the district were collected and compiled, seasonal annual averages calculated and interpolated to provide rainfall distribution maps for the district with the help of the formula rainfall variability for the four seasons were calculated.
