We ( Pradeep and myself) have got some figures for the year 2011, but they are haphhazard..meaning few are till september end. We are trying to get the Hulikal post monsoon ,which may be in excess of Cherrapunji for 2011..but till then..
1st four all India Rainfall Toppers for 2011:
C'punji 8675 mms (12 months),
Hulikal 8311 mms (9 months),
Amboli 7874 mms (12 months),
Agumbe 7841 (12 months).
The World Meteorological Organization, Geneva, has recently issued its provisional statement on the status of the global climate. It says that the year 2011 ranked tenth among the top ten warm years.
Putting it differently, one can say that the year 2011 was the coolest of the top ten warm years.
