Many studies carried out have shown evidence of regional temperature and precipitation variability along with global climate changes. A key issue is whether these variability follow trends that are uniform or others have increasing trends while others decreasing trend. And this study was carried out using Mann-Kendall trend test method and regression analysis method with the data observed by a total of 20stations to investigate the trends of temperature and precipitation in northern China. 10stations were selected from urban areas (section 1.4.2: table 1.1) and another 10stations were selected from desert areas of China (section 1.4.2: table 1.2). The data for temperature (maximum temperature, minimum temperature) and precipitation was obtained for these 20stations for the period 1981-2010 (section 3.1). [...]
