Abstract

A method is proposed for determining the occurrence of climatic change with respect to precipitation. The method is an analysis of variance procedure with a Markov chain model used to estimate the within-group variance. An illustration using data from Medford, Oregon, for the fall seasons from 1948 to 1976 is provided.
