Abstract:

In order to identify meso-scale changes in the variance of precipitation methods have been devised using relationship between the means and standard deviations. The preliminary results are very promising. The index of sympathy is used to identify periods of presistant rainfall in geographical areas. The east coast of Costa Rica has a high persistance for some months. The distribution in time and space of rainfall with elevation is investigated for selected stations in Ecuador. Author
