Total rainfall by season at Marseille. The last great epidemic period (1772 to 1776) has been underlined in grey. The seasons were interpreted as follows: winter (December of the previous year, January and February), spring (from March to May), summer (from June to August) and fall (from September to November). For reasons of readability, only the period from 1750 to 1790 is shown.
