Topographical and coastal influence on spatial precipitation patterns in Tunisia

Topographical and coastal influence on spatial precipitation patterns in Tunisia The spatial properties of the correlation structure based on daily rainfall data from 67 stations throughout Tunisia over a 5‐year period are examined. The correlation structure is generally markedly anisotropic as influenced by topography and the coast. These two factors seem to influence the correlation pattern differently during different months. The mean areas within the 0.7 correlation isoline for all subgroups vary from about 1000 km2 in the early autumn to about 7000 km2 in the winter months. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png International Journal of Climatology Wiley

Abstract

The spatial properties of the correlation structure based on daily rainfall data from 67 stations throughout Tunisia over a 5‐year period are examined. The correlation structure is generally markedly anisotropic as influenced by topography and the coast. These two factors seem to influence the correlation pattern differently during different months. The mean areas within the 0.7 correlation isoline for all subgroups vary from about 1000 km2 in the early autumn to about 7000 km2 in the winter months.
