, which becomes substantial in the deep tropics between 10°S and 10°N ( Fig. 4a ). The sum of the budget terms overestimates P by about 15% when averaged over the tropics, but shows better agreement in the deep tropics. Submonthly transients and surface effects likely account for most of this difference ( Seager and Henderson 2013 ). Fig . 4. (a) Annual mean, (b) amplitude, and (c) phase of the terms in the moisture budget [Eq. (3) ] for the multimodel mean of the CMIP5 simulations. The solid thick

, Messina (2013) has attempted to map the effects of 2003 drought conditions in the Krishna basin. It is reported that the drought and flood disasters in 2003 and 2005, respectively, have devoured more funds than the planned budget of the rural and agriculture sectors in Maharashtra State for 2002–07 ( World Bank 2008 ). The recent drought experienced in 2012 has adversely affected the agrarian economy of Maharashtra ( Udmale et al. 2014 ). The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change ( IPCC 2013
