Monitoring of precipitation anomalies on multiple time scales

» More about monitoring of precipitation anomalies

All components of the climatic system (atmosphere, hydrosphere, cryosphere, land surface and biosphere) are connected with the water. Extreme anomalies of precipitation in the system atmosphere land surface and atmosphere hydrosphere have direct influence on society. These web pages contain information about precipitation anomalies on a daily, monthly and multi-monthly time scale on 22 stations in Croatia.

Monitoring wet and dry conditions on daily time scale is based on the squared root normal distribution. Input data are:

• Daily precipitation data from the long term period: January 1961 December 2000.
• Daily precipitation data from the previous month.

On the monthly and multi-monthly time scale the statistical model for the analysis of precipitation anomalies is based on the gamma distribution and the standard normal distribution. Input data are:

• Monthly precipitation data from the period: January 1961 - December 2000.
• Monthly precipitation data from the last four years.
