Abstract

The climatology of drought for Arizona and economic losses suffered in the ranching, agriculture, and tourism sectors was described. Statistical analyses were performed on the data including the annual and long-term mean. The calculations were performed to determine the precipitation percentages for each climate division of Arizona. It was found that two precipitation peaks occur each year in the winter and the summer in Arizona.
