Abstract : The article discusses the intensity of preciptiation over Eurasia and North Africa. The intensity of precipitation over a large section of Eurasia is low from January to July. In July the intensity increases especially in regions with prevalent summer monsoon circulation. Intensity increases in July because of an increased quantity of precipitation and also because of the brief time in which it falls. The maps included are schematic, as they are obtained for vast regions from data at only a small number of meteorological stations. (Author)
