Abstract : We consider a stationary stochastic process (X (sub t): t = 0,1,...) based upon the presence of weather regimes in which the regime indices (K (sub t): t = 0,1,...) form a finitestate stationary ergodic (firstorder) Markov chain. The probabilistic problem was considered in previous reports. Here, we now consider the problem of estimating the transition matrix P = (p (sug ij): 1 < or = i,j < or = N) when N and the finitedimensional joint distribution functions of the Xprocess are known.
