[1] A recently derived data set of daily precipitation is used to study the summer precipitation events over Asia and their changes in the decades of 1978–2002. Regional features of the precipitation over entire tropical-subtropical Asia are investigated, exploiting the increased resolution and improved accuracy of the data set relative to other estimates. The changes in precipitation amount and precipitation days for total, extreme, heavy, and light-moderate precipitations are examined… 

Regional features of precipitation over Asia and summer extreme precipitation over Southeast Asia and their associations with atmospheric–oceanic conditions

The variations of both total and extreme precipitations over Asia are characterized by large regional features and seasonality. Extreme precipitation mainly occurs in summer and then in autumn over

Changes in Characteristics of Late-Summer Precipitation over Eastern China in the Past 40 Years Revealed by Hourly Precipitation Data

Abstract Using hourly station rain gauge data during 1966–2005, the authors studied changes in the characteristics of the late-summer (July–August) rainfall, which has exhibited a so-called southern

Changes in clustered extreme precipitation events in South China and associated atmospheric circulations

Previous studies have documented that the summer precipitation over South China (SC) has experienced a prominent inter‐decadal increase in 1992/1993, and the possible mechanism has been well

Observed variability of summer precipitation pattern and extreme events in East China associated with variations of the East Asian summer monsoon

This article presents a comprehensive analysis of interannual and interdecadal variations of summer precipitation and precipitation‐related extreme events in East China associated with variations of

Diurnal variations of summer precipitation over the Asian monsoon region as revealed by TRMM satellite data

Climatological characteristics of diurnal variations in summer precipitation over the Asian monsoon region are comprehensively investigated based on the Tropical Rainfall Measuring Mission (TRMM)

Forced Decadal Changes in Summer Precipitation Characteristics over China: The Roles of Greenhouse Gases and Anthropogenic Aerosols

We investigated the decadal changes in the different types of summer mean precipitation over China across the mid-1990s based on observational datasets. The spatial variations in the observed decadal

Trends in Precipitation Extremes in the Zhujiang River Basin, South China

Abstract Spatial and temporal characteristics of precipitation trends in the Zhujiang River basin, South China, are analyzed. Nonparametric trend tests are applied to daily precipitation data from

Characteristics of the precipitation over the eastern edge of the Tibetan Plateau

Variations of precipitation over the eastern edge of the Tibetan Plateau are analyzed by using data over station Yaan including daytime, nighttime, and daily-mean precipitation and satellite-derived

Decadal features of heavy rainfall events in eastern China

Based on daily precipitation data, the spatial-temporal features of heavy rainfall events (HREs) during 1960–2009 are investigated. The results indicate that the HREs experienced strong decadal

Decreasing precipitation occurs in daily extreme precipitation intervals across China in observations and model simulations

Extreme precipitation response to increasing temperature includes not only changes of frequency and intensity, but also changes of extreme precipitation interval (EPIV) and the precipitation during



Trends in Total Precipitation and Frequency of Daily Precipitation Extremes over China

Abstract Based on a newly developed daily precipitation dataset of 740 stations in China and more robust trend detection techniques, trends in annual and seasonal total precipitation and in extreme

Observed trends of precipitation amount, frequency, and intensity in China, 1960–2000

[1] We examined the spatial and temporal variation in precipitation observed daily at 272 weather stations operated by the China Meteorological Administration from 1960 to 2000. We found that

Severe summer rainfall in China associated with enhanced global warming

Trends of extreme wet and dry conditions during recent decades were examined using observed data for eastern China. Mean precipitation for the region has shown a significant down- ward trend from the

Long‐term climate variations in China and global warming signals

[1] In this work, the authors analyze the observed long-term variations of seasonal climate in China and then investigate the possible influence of increases in greenhouse gas concentrations on these

Seasonal Precipitation Series of Eastern China Since 1880 and the Variability

The seasonal and annual precipitation series of 35 stations over eastern China were established using the observations as well as proxy data. All the time series cover the period 1880~1998. During

Precipitation division and climate shift in China from 1960 to 2000

SummaryPrecipitation division and climate shift in China were analysed using daily precipitation data from 486 stations for the period 1960–2000. A modified hierarchical clustering method was used to

Features of cross‐Pacific climate shown in the variability of China and US precipitation

In this study, we have analyzed the climate features of China and the United States with a focus on the differences, similarities, connectivity, and predictability of precipitation and the

Influences of Tropical Western and Extratropical Pacific SST on East and Southeast Asian Climate in the Summers of 1993–94

Abstract This study emphasizes the importance of sea surface temperature (SST) over the tropical western Pacific and the ocean–atmosphere coupling in the extratropical Pacific for the climate in East

A long‐term regional simulation and observations of the hydroclimate in China

Driven by the complex topography, inhomogeneous land surface conditions and large-scale circulation exhibiting strong variability at various time scales, the hydroclimate of China presents many
