Abstract:
Assessment of climate variability and change is required for impact assessment (to estimate variations which are likely to occur) and for policy development (to recommend possible solutions). Climatic variables such as temperature and rainfall determine the water availability, soil moisture availability, humidity evaporation and evapotranspiration etc. Present work carried out to study the statistical characteristics of rainfall (Monthly, Seasonal and Annual Rainfall) and temperature (monthly maximum and minimum temperature) over Rajasthan, India (1901–2002), which were examined using Mann-Kendall (MK) and Sen’s slope estimator statistical tests. From statistical test results, it can be concluded that there is evidence of some change in the trend of rainfall of the Rajasthan. The maximum variation in the temperature was found in the minimum temperatures where both significant increase and decrease were observed in different regions.
