Abstract

Based on the long-term precipitation series with annual time resolution in the middle and lower reaches of the Yellow River and its 4 sub-regions during 1736-2000 reconstructed from the rainfall and snowfall archives of the Qing Dynasty, the precipitation cycles are analyzed by wavelet analysis and the possible climate forcings, which drive the precipitation changes, are explored. The results show that : the precipitation in the middle and lower reaches of the Yellow River has inter-annual and inter-decadal oscillations. The 2-4a cycle is linked with El Niño events
