A Twentieth-Century Rainfall History of India
Joshi, M.K. and Pandey, A.C. 2011. Trend and spectral analysis of rainfall over India during1901-2000. Journal of Geophysical Research 116: 10.1029/2010JD014966.
The two researchers state that for all of India, as well as for each of its four sub-regions, there was substantial inter-decadal variability of annual rainfall that could be "attributed to the inter-decadal variability of eastern equatorial Pacific SST (Niño 3) or Indian Ocean Dipole Mode," but they say that "no significant trend is discernable during the last ten decades, when the linear least squares fitting method and Mann-Kendall statistic to identify the trend and the normalized test statistic and statistical probability to quantify the significance of the trend are applied on the annual rainfall data for all India and its sub-regions."
Contrary to the implications of global climate models employed by the IPCC, the global warming of the past century -- which many of the contributors to its reports describe as being unprecedented over the past millennium or more -- has not led to any significant concomitant change in the mean annual rainfall of all of India or that of any of its four sub-regions.
