Iyengar, R Narayana (1982) Stochastic modelling of monthly rainfall. In: Journal of Hydrology, 57 (3-4). pp. 375-387.Full text not available from this repository.
A transformation is suggested which can transform a non-Gaussian monthly hydrological time series into a Gaussian one. The suggested approach is verified with data of ten Indian rainfall time series. Incidentally, it is observed that once the deterministic trends are removed, the transformation leads to an uncorrelated process for monthly rainfall. The procedure for normalization is general enough in that it should be also applicable to river discharges. This is verified to a limited extent by considering data of two Indian river discharges.
