Abstract

This paper investigates the correlation and the coefficient of variation to find variability of rainfall during monsoon over Bangladesh from 1951 to 2000. Twenty nine stations have been considered in six divisions distributed all over Bangladesh in this study. Chittagong and Khulna have experienced the highest and lowest average rainfall respectively during the study period. The high and low stability of rainfall occur in Sylhet and Khulna divisions during the 50 years.
