Scope:
Notes: Annual rainfall seasonality is an index derived from two ratios. The ratio of warm (Oct-Nov-Dec-Jan-Feb-Mar) to cool (Apr-May-Jun-Jul-Aug-Sep) season rainfall totals (minus 1) are assigned positive values when rainfall in the warm season is greater than rainfall in the cool season. The ratio of cool to warm season rainfall totals (plus 1) are assigned negative values when rainfall in the cool season is greater than rainfall in the warm season.
