LONG TERM VARIABILITY OF ANNUAL PRECIPITATION IN ARMENIA IN THE CONTEXT OF CHANGING CLIMATE

Hrachuhi Galstyan, Lucian Sfîcă, Pavel Ichim

Abstract


This study concerns the analysis of temporal and spatial variability of precipitation in the Republic of Armenia in the second half of the twentieth century and the first decade of the twenty–first century. The study area includes Armenia where long–term measurements and observations of weather conditions have been performed within the national meteorological services of Armenia (43 meteorological stations). Their monthly data of precipitation taken from the measuring period of 1961–2012 will be implied in the study. The presence of trends in annual precipitation will be assessed by means of the Mann-Kendall test and autocorrelation function, as well as Khronostat program, including someparametric and non parametric tests.
