Paper Title:
Characteristics of Climate Warming in China and its Impacts on Environment
  Abstract

The characteristics of climate warming in China are investigated by using observed daily surface temperatures at 541 gauge stations from 1960 to 2010 and monthly pressure and air temperature from NCEP/NCAR reanalysis dataset. The results show that the temperature exhibits an ascending trend regardless of regions, underlying surface situations, seasons and atmosphere layers for the past 50 years, but warming rate is higher in north, west, urban district, winter and low atmosphere layer than that in south, east, suburb, summer and mid atmosphere layers, respectively. Afterwards analyzed is the interrelation of temperature variation, Siberian high and land use. Finally the connection between environmental destruction and climate warming is discussed based on the following process, viz., climate warming leads to frequent occurrence of extreme weather and climate events as droughts and floods, which can cause geological disasters and destroy the environment.
