Abstract

A climatic regionalization of the Tibet (Xizang) Autonomous Region (TAR) is developed based on a multivariate analysis of temperature and precipitation records of two data sets from the periods 1971-1980 and 1980-1989. Cluster analysis, factor analysis and discriminant analysis were followed up. The results of the multivariate statistical analysis were compared with traditional classification schemes published by the Chinese Academy of Sciences (CAS). For temperature zonation and, in particular, for the distribution of precipitation, the high mountain topography of Tibet is interpreted as the determining factor
