Trends of major hydroclimatic variables in the Tarim River basin during the past 50 years

Trends of major hydroclimatic variables in the Tarim River basin during the past 50 years

Journal Of Arid Environments: 2, 256-267

The nonparametric Mann-Kendall test was used to detect the trends of major hydroclimatic variables in the Tarim River Basin, the largest inland river basin in China for the period of 1960-2007. Results showed that both mean annual air temperature and precipitation experienced an increasing trend, while annual streamflow demonstrated a mixed trend of decreasing and increasing: The mountainous region upstream showed an increasing trend and the region downstream exhibited a decreasing trend.
