Temperature Changes in Central Asia from 1979 to 2011 Based on Multiple Datasets*

Zengyun Hu, Chi Zhang, Qi Hu & Hanqin Tian
The arid and semiarid region in central Asia is sensitive and vulnerable to climate variations. However, the sparse and highly unevenly distributed meteorological stations in the region provide limited data for understanding of the region’s climate variations. In this study, the near-surface air temperature change in central Asia from 1979 to 2011 was examined using observations from 81 meteorological stations, three local observation validated reanalysis datasets of relatively high spatial resolutions, and the Climate Research...
