    • Abstract


      Indian summer monsoon seasonal rainfall for the period 1871–1986 over the meteorological subdivisions has been analysed using the method of deterministic chaos. It is shown that a strange attractor underlies the monsoon evolution in each subdivision. The dimensionality of the attractor and the number of key variables necessary to model the subdivisional dynamics have been determined.
