    Based on the data of daily precipitation from October to November from 1960 to 1996 at 28 stations including Yichang, Wufeng, Lvchongpo, Enshi, Fengjie, Wanxian, Liangping, Fuling, Chongqing, Daxian, Liangzhong, Mianyang, Chengdu, Doujiangyan, Yaan, Emeishan, Leshan, Leibo, Yibin, Nanchong, Shuining, Neijiang, Luzhou, Xuyong, Jinfoshan, Tongzi, Zunyi, Sinan in the Three Gorges reservoir area, the status of autumn rain was analyzed and the evolutionary law was studied. The results showed that autumn rain mainly concentrated from early October to early November during the river closure period in the Three Gorges dam area. The main conclusion were as follows: (1) Mean rain days during October --November are 25 ~ 30days. Particularly, rain days are 30-38 days in western and southwestern plateau of Sicuan Province. And the most area with 45 rain days is Emei Mount. Though the rain days are abundant, the total Precipitation amount is small which is less than that in summer and the intensity is weak. The largest rainfall area with precipitation of 242 mm locates in Lvchongpo. (2) Rain frequency during October~November is decreasing. And there is one thing to be mentioned that the frequency of serious autumn rain is as lower as 10% in dam area of the three Gorges. (3) From the viewpoint of the distribution of autumn rain frequency, it is smaller in western reservoir area of the three Gorges than in eastern part, and it is much frequent in southern part than in northern part. The lowest area is center northern part and the most frequent area is center western part. (4) There is 21 years with serious and normal autumn rain with the frequency of 56. 8% during 1960--1996. Yearly, autumn rain is evident every year in 1960s and every2 year in 1970s. And it is not evident in 1980s. While in 1990s it alternates between the evident year and not evident year. (5) In addition, the features of autumn rain in 1994 and in 1996 are analyzed in this paper due to the evident autumn rain occurrence.

    Climatic factors are one of the most important elements in deciding the running of the Three Gorges Reservoir. Therefore it is of high value to study the impacts of climate change on the Three Gorges Reservoir for the proper management, the shipping of the Upper Reaches, the flood control of Middle and Lower Reaches of the Chang Jiang River, and the electrical power supplying for Center China and East China. The Monte Carlo experiment is used to analyze the change in monthly precipitation patterns under the climate scenario derived from a coupled general circulation model (CGCM). Results indicate that the flood risk in the running will increase in the early and mid summer. Although the drought risk in mid and late winter due to climate average change will be generally lessened, the frequency of extreme drought occurrence will increase as the result of changes in precipitation variability, which will lead to an increase in risk.

    It is revealed through principal component and factor analysis methods that there exist four types of seasonal patters of spatial differentiation of land corer change in China. The relationship between NDVI and seasonal and interannual precipitation and temperature change were studied for 17 typically vegetation types in China. The results show that impacts of precipitation and temperature interannual change on vegetation growth are different for regions of different vegetation types. The data of temperature and precipitation are used to predict NDVI in selected areas in China by methods of artificial neural networks and stepwise regression. The result shows that combining the two methods is helpful in improving prediction accuracy. Land cover change and climate change interaction through biophysical processes that involve the transfers of energy and water at the land surface and biophysical cycles that affect the concentrations of greenhouse gases and aerosols in the atmosphere. The impact of land cover change on the mesoscale boundary layer structure of the midlatitude semiarid area has been investigated by using a mesoscase biological meteorological model coupled with a cumulus ensemble parameterization scheme. A new China climate-vegetation model is developed, in which soil is taken as a limiting factor and elevation as an affecting factor. As a result, not only is the total precision of the model improved, but also is the precision of each vegetation type amended significantly.

    Numerical Experiments on the Impact of Land Cover on Climate

    The impact of vegetation coverage on the mesoscale boundary layer structure of the midlatitude semiarid area has been investigated by using a mesoscale biological meteorological model coupled with a cumulus ensemble parameterization scheme over both a flat terrain and a complicated terrain under conditions with- and without-synoptic flow and different background atmospheric humidity. The investigation indicates that regional perturbations in temperature and specific humidity over vegetation covered area from an adjacent dry, hair soil, caused by the water transpiration from vegetation and more evaporation from the underlying soil surface as compared to the adjacent dry, bare soil, since the soil covered by vegetation will be humider as compared to the bare soil. As a result, a positive pressure perturbation was created over vegetation area. A mesoscale circulation (called as vegetation breeze circulation, VBC) is forced over a flat terrain under calm synoptic condition by the horizontal pressure gradient with a wind speed reaching about 3. 2 m/s, directing from the vegetation area to the bare soil in the lower boundary layer. The regional climate over a flat terrain is greatly impacted by the VBC. Simulations also indicated that the convective precipitations were initiated and organized by vegetation -breeze circulations. The timing, location and strength of the precipitations will probably be controlled by the convergence zone associated with VBC’s fronts and their interaction. Synoptic flow, atmospheric specific humidity and landscape changes played a significant role in modifying the structure and distribution of perturbations in wind, specific humidity, temperature and deep convective features (including convective clouds and precipitation). That is the reason why the deep convective precipitation event was considerably different day by day. The climate over a complex terrain is determined by the interactions between upslope flow circulation (UFC) and the VBC. Over a terrain defined as plain-slope- plateau, when the plain is covered by vegetation the UFC will be enhanced because the UFC is in phase with the VBC; when the vegetation covers the slope and plateau area, the VBC is out of phase with UFC, the simulated UFC will decrease; when the terrain is completely covered by vegetation, the intensity of the thermally forced upslope flow circulation is decreased; when the terrain in the east of the plateau and west of the plain are covered by the canopy, the mesoscale climate will depend upon the interaction between VBC and UFC.

    This paper presents the 1784--1787 successive drought events in the farming land of east China as a case study done in such a way that the dryness sitation is reconstructed in the context of historical works and documents by drawing the dynamic development of disaster--hit and food famine zones on an annual basis. Results show that the rerrible events took place dominantly in 1784--1786 for the years 49th-51th of Qianlong Emperor of Qing Dynasty, covering the provinces of Liaoning, Inner Mongolia, Shanxi, Shaanxi, Shandong, Henan, Anhui,Hubei (to the north of the Yangtze River),and later extending into Jiangxi, Hunan, Fujian, Guangdong, Guangxi, Sichuan and Gansu, with the maximum seventy lasting 5 years in the lower valleys of the Yellow River where drought was relieved as late as the autumn of 1788, which was given in local chronicles and confirmed by the Weather Record of that time as another meteorological dataset, As indicated for Suzhou in the Record, the number of wet days were 28 days, reconstructing the total rainfall of 174 mm for June-August, 1785 as the sub--maximum in that century, arriving at an anomaly near -60% and smaller than the climatic extremum in the past 50 years. This article present tabulated description of the drying up of the rivers and lakes in that time over the research region, showing that the seventy has never been experienced in modern times. The drought events occurred a climatic warming background, i. e., in a warm phase of the Little Ice Age, as revealed by the reconstructing winter temperature series of Shanghai for the last 500 years. In comparison to the reconstructed curve of northern temperatures in history, the study droughts fall into a stage of warm climate. Also, the historical recording shows that the extensive band of east China saw no snowfall in 1784-1786 in succession even in the normally snow--rich provinces of Jiangsu and Anhui, and we find warm winter to be in 1778 and 1779. Moreover, the work discloses that the droughts are related to sunspot activities and El Nino episodes: they happened in the week--4 low--valued span of the activities and the year of 1785 as the prime period of the events was in the year before the 1786 event. The resulting drought features in east China are in good agreement with relevant studies. It is noted that the long--term drought disasters were followed by large--scale food famine, which was relieved by the government and with the aid of the act to help refugees from the populace. However, locust plagues and epidemic diseases ensued, with the affected regions given in a diagram for 1784--1786 calamities. The 1784-1787 drought study can be used for reference in our future combat against drought.

    Abstract ( 581 )   PDF (378KB) ( 444 )   Save
    In order to enhance the pre- assessment of disaster reduction, a statistic predicting model is developed for simulating direct economic losses caused by climate abnormality. The model consists of time sequential term T(t), climate abnormality impact term P (t) and random variation term S (t). After parameter adjustment with statistic data, the model is run for the economic simulation losses from 1989 to 1999. The simulated results are quite consistent with the observed ones (R2: 0. 9847, F: 150.45). The economic losses in 2000 are predicted by. using the model with different SAAO/ GDPPI. In terms of the prediction results. the economic losses in 2000 will be higher than the ones in 1999. If the investment ratio of agriculture and disaster reduction, SAAO/ GDPPI, increases, the economic losses caused by climate abnormality would decrease by a wide. margin.
