  author={Qinglong You and Jinzhong Min and Houbo Lin and Nicholas C. Pepin and Mika Sillanp{\"a}{\"a} and Kang Shichang},
Monthly surface relative humidity (RH) data for 71 stations in the Tibetan Plateau (TP) provided by the National Meteorological Information Center/China Meteorological Administration are compared with corresponding grid points from the National Center for Environmental Prediction/National Center for Atmospheric Research (NCEP/NCAR hereafter) reanalysis. Mean climatologies, interannual variabilities, and trends calculated by the MannKendal method are analyzed during 1961–2013. The annual… CONTINUE READING
