Kumar, Vickal V. and Deo, Ravinesh C. and Ramachandran, Visagaperuman (2006) Total rain accumulation and rain-rate analysis for small tropical Pacific islands: a case study of Suva, Fiji. Atmospheric Science Letters, 7 (3). pp. 53-58.
Rain-rate analyses using hourly data from 1990 to 2002 predict rain occurrence for ~15% of the year while minute data for the period Apr ‘02–Mar ‘03 resolve rain-rate more accurately and show rain occurrence of ~2% of the year. It is estimated that <1% of the rain at the site is mainly convective. Rainfall analysis confirms its dependence on El Nino Southern Oscillation and convergence zones.
