Abstract

Using 10 meteorological stations over the Yarlung Zangbo River (YR) basin in 1961-2005, the spatial and temporal characteristics of temperature and precipitation as well as potential evapotranspiration are analyzed. The annual and four seasonal mean air temperature shows statistically significant increasing trend, the tendency is more significant in winter and fall. The magnitudes of precipitation increasing and potential evapotranspiration decreasing are larger than in other areas, suggesting that the YR basin is one of the most sensitive areas to global warming
