Spatial distribution of annual precipitation and vapour pressure deficit (VPD) trends on the Tibetan Plateau during 1971–2005
The majority of meteorological stations showed positive trends
in precipitation on the Tibetan Plateau (Fig. 4); however, the
increases were less pronounced, especially during the summer, in
comparison to the increases in air temperature.
Increasing trends were evident in the northern and extreme eastern
and southeastern areas of the Tibetan Plateau; however, some
regions showed negative trends, such as the stations in western
Sichuan province and the region between 30° N and 32° N to the east
of the Lantsang River (Fig. 4).
