  The perception about whether a place is a nice place to live often depends on how often it rains (or snows). The frequency relates to how dreary the weather appears, and it is the duration much more than the amount that clouds perceptions. Yet, information about the frequency of rainfall, or precipitation in general, is spotty at by: An explanation of the rainfall probability and the rainfall amounts in official forecasts can be found here. Automated computer model rainfall forecasts The Water and the Land (WATL) web site provides rainfall forecast maps generated automatically by weather forecast models.

Surface Runoff, Percolation, Total Runoff and Evaporation from Precipitation ( Edition) Overview The prerequisite for a water-management planning process and a management system for water resources oriented toward the principles of sustainability is that the knowledge of surface runoff and percolation, and of new groundwater formation. Rainfall is a key component of the global water cycle and is essential for a wide range of applications such as crop modeling, hydrometeorology, water resource management, flood and drought monitoring, and climatological applications [1, 2, 3].Accurate and consistent rainfall estimates are also of remarkable importance for the drought-prone regions, such as the semiarid region of Northeast.

Köppen climate classification, widely used, vegetation-based, empirical climate classification system developed by German botanist-climatologist Wladimir aim was to devise formulas that would define climatic boundaries in such a way as to correspond to those of the vegetation zones that were being mapped for the first time during his lifetime.   Figure shows how evaporation and precipitation vary with latitude. Over two-thirds of total global evaporation occurs within 30° of the Equator, because of the higher temperatures in equatorial and tropical areas. Evaporation reaches its greatest values not at the Equator itself, but between latitudes of 10° and 20° in both hemispheres.

Meteorology is a branch of the atmospheric sciences which includes atmospheric chemistry and atmospheric physics, with a major focus on weather study of meteorology dates back millennia, though significant progress in meteorology did not occur until the 18th 19th century saw modest progress in the field after weather observation networks were formed across broad.
