Monsoon Rain Prediction for Year 2020 for Marathawada India

Main Article Content

Anand M. Sharan

Abstract

This work was undertaken to predict expected rainfall in year 2020 because Marathawada suffers frequently from drought and as a consequence, many farmers committ suicide. If rainfall is not enough then it is the farmer who suffers the most as compared to others who lend money, sell seeds etc. In doing so, sufficiently large period is used (past 32 years) in three methods other than the Artificial Neural Network (ANN) method where rainfall history back to AD 1872 is used in the analysis. In addition, some details about the four methods are also mentioned here.

To arrive at the predictions, four methods were used and their average value was used for predictions of rain for various months. The methods used were – the Fast Fourier Transform (FFT) method, the Artificial Neural Network (ANN) method, the Time Series method and the Root Mean Square (RMS) method. The result shows that this year there will be slightly more rainfall than the average of last 32 years.
