Monsoon rainfall over India during the 120-day period from the beginning of June to the end of September exhibits interesting oscillations over the country. According to an analysis by Sub-bramayya (1968), there is a negative correlation in rainfall between the north-eastern and west-central parts of India. But his analysis does not indicate how much of the total variance of rainfall is explained by different rainfall patterns. We examined this aspect by expressing rainfall as a linear combination of orthogonal functions. This technique was suggested by Lorenz (1956). It was later used by Kutzbach (1967) and Weare (1977) to evaluate the principal components of sea-level pressure over the northern hemisphere, and sea surface temperature over the Atlantic Ocean.DOI: 10.1111/j.2153-3490.1980.tb00956.x
