The multimodality of the rainfall course in Israel, as reflected by the distribution of dry spells

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Abstract

An attempt to find fluctuations in the annual course of the rainfall in Israel was done, based on the distribution of dry spells. A trimodal rainfall course was found, with three minima and two secondary maxima between them. Each minimum represents a rainier period, while a maximum means a drier period. Different timing in the occurrence of the minima and maxima in different parts of the country is related to the fact that each region is affected predominantly by different rainfall systems.
