Short summary
In the Mediterranean climate as well as in some tropical climates, such as in Algeria, a few rainy days account for a high percentage of the annual total precipitation. The contribution of very rainy days can be evaluated by means of the concentration index (CI) (Martin-Vide, 2004). The values of CI for 42 meteorological stations in Algeria, over the period 1970--2008, have been calculated; the highest values occurred in Biskra and in the southwest.
