Subject rainfall spectral analysis climatology precipitation empirical orthogonal function eigenvectors maximum entropy power spectrum rainfall periodicities Kauai Oahu Maui Molokai Lanai Hawaii Rain and rainfall -- Hawaii.
Description The empirical orthogonal function was applied to analyze 40-yr annual rainfall data for 80 stations in the state of Hawaii, which included 21 stations on Hawaii, 18 on Maui, 5 on Molokai, 5 on Lanai, 16 on Oahu, and 15 on Kauai. The chi-square statistic was introduced to test the stabilities of eigenvectors, E-1, E-2, and E-3, for the state and its six major islands. The eigenvectors, especially E-1 and E-2, for the state and individual islands are quite stable within the 30-yr period....
