[12] used the harmonic technique to analyze precipitation climatology in Jordan and Turkey, respectively; the results of these two articles agree with each other in terms of the percentages of variance of the first harmonic, which represent more than 90% of variation.

The period of the first long-periodical harmonic in (1) depends on the observational time span in case of classic Fourier approximation but here it is possible to decrease the value of the first harmonic so the estimated frequencies may cover the desired set of real oscillations This method allows a flexible and easy separation of harmonic oscillations into different frequency bands by the formula
