The records of 92 pluviometric stations located in the Trentino Province (Italian Eastern Alps) were analyzed in order to find significant features in their spatial and temporal distribution. Differentiation of climatic regimes was detected, as well as the influence of many topographic-geographic parameters. Analyses of the data from the 20 stations with the best continuity of records indicate some periodic trends, with a major influence of those having a wavelength of ca. 26.7, 36.9 and 13.5 years. Also non strictly periodic Mediterranean oscillations influences the precipitation in the study area.

Aufzeichnungen von 92 in der Provinz Trentino (Italienische Ostalpen) stationierten Regenmessern wurden analysiert, um signifikante Strukturen in ihrer räumlichen und zeitlichen Verteilung zu identifizieren. Es wurde eine Differenzierung klimatischer Regimes gefunden, sowie ein Einfluss verschiedener topographischgeographischer Parameter. Analysen der 20 Datenreihen mit der besten zeitlichen Kontinuität weisen auf einige periodische Trends hin, wobei das stärkste Signal bei den Wellenlängen 26,7, 36,9 und 13,5 Jahre festgestellt wurde. Desweiteren beeinflussen die nicht strikt periodischen Mediterranen Oszillationen das Niederschlagsregime im untersuchten Gebiet.
