The rainfall regime was investigated on the basis of data collected at six weather stations in the coastal region of Algeria. After processing this data, an approach was developed based on Markov chains, principal component analysis, and the bootstrap method applied to historical and simulated data. The results highlighted between-station differences and potential rainfall regime changes throughout the surveyed zone.
