Abstract:

The present study Studies on drought climatology in different districts of Chhattisgarh in the back drop of climate change is carried out to study the drought climatology in different districts. It was found that though the mild drought intensity is less in Mahasamund, Dhamtari and Raigarh districts, the total number of drought years including mild, large, severe and disastrous droughts is more in these districts indicating that these three districts are more drought-prone. On the other hand Bilaspur and Janjgir districts are less drought prone when compared to other districts. The drought pattern in the back drop of climate change due to global warming was examined. It is very clear from the analysis that the number drought years in a 40 years period had drastically increased during post global warming period (1971-2010) as compared to pre global warming period. This a clear evidence of the impact of regional climate changes due to global warming on the rainfall pattern in all the districts of Chhattisgarh state.
