Climate Change in Moghan Plain
In: Proceedings of the Conference on Human and Economic Resources
AbstractClimate change is one of the main challenges in agro-meteorological researches. In recent years, high temperature and moisture stresses caused a reduction in crop yield at some regions of Iran. In present study the climate change of Moghan plain located at the north-west of Iran was investigated using the meteorological data from 1986 to 2000. Results showed that annual total precipitation and average temperature were as 258.9 mm and 14.99 °C, respectively. The minimum and maximum temperatures were occurred in January and July and high variation was for February. From year to year, the minimum, mean and maximum temperature varied slightly. Total precipitation was increasing in months of a year. The high variation belonged to October with trend slope of 2.95 and indicating an increasing about 3 mm to the annually total precipitation. The maximum and minimum of precipitation occurred for autumn and spring seasons and were as 81.83 and 40.59 mm, respectively.
