Fitting of Probability Distribution on the Post-Monsoon Rainfall of Different Locations in Bangladesh

  •  Md. Habibur Rahman    


Different probability distributions of post-monsoon rainfall of different locations in Bangladesh are fitted. It is found that, for the data, Weibull distribution for Barisal, Bogra, Chittagong, Comilla, Cox's Bazar, Faridpur, Jessore, Khulna, Maijdi Court, Mymensingh, Satkhira, and Sylhet; the Gamma distribution for Dhaka, Ishurdi, Rangamati, Rangpur, and Srimangal based on graphical assessment and goodness-of-fit criterion. In this study, different probability distributions have been fitted for the data of post-monsoon precipitation for 17 different locations in Bangladesh over the period 1961-2014.
