Abstract

This study aims to identify the geographical patterns of seasonal rainfall in China, examine the temporal variability in each precipitation region for various seasons and to investigate the relationships between seasonal rainfall patterns with atmospheric teleconnections. Rainfall variability in China for the period from 1951 to 1999 was investigated with monthly rainfall data for 160 meteorological stations. It was discovered that the Polar-Eurasia (POL) and Arctic Oscillation (AO) index were positively associated with winter precipitation, indicating the significance of the winter monsoon in producing the rainfall pattern
