Due to very uneven distribution of precipitation in space and time, China is frequently affected by floods and droughts. These natural disasters have been a major drawback for the economic and social development in China throughout history.
Since the beginning of the s, Chinese scientists have compiled a remarkably good inventory. 1 CHEN ET AL.: FUTURE CHANGES OF DROUGHT AND FLOOD IN CHINA 9 pact of global warming on drought and flood patterns in China by comparing the projected climate (–) in.

weather related floods caused by earthquakes and landslides from the chronology when those events could be linked to the cause.
But there are many instances where the flood cause is undetermined. These have not been filtered out.)

Therefore, in practice the flood water level of the reservoirs is maintained at the flood control level throughout the flood season in order to ensure the safety of the hydraulic Size: 43KB.
This drought happened in the 2nd to 4th reigning year of the Guangxu Emperor of the Qing Dynasty. It is a long-lasting extensive disaster, bringing about extremely serious social consequences and is thus called the Guangxu Severe Drought by Chinese by: events, e.g.

Summaries of reports of drought effects on forest trees are presented in tabular by: A drought event has the following major components (Dracup et al., ) as derived from Fig. 1 which include: (a) Drought initiation time (t i): it is the starting of the water shortage period, which indicates the beginning of a drought.(b) Drought termination time (t e): it is the time when the water shortage becomes sufficiently small so that drought conditions no longer by: China has been struck by an extreme weather paradox of severe drought in the north and severe flooding in the south, said the State Flood Control and Drought Relief Headquarters.

The authors also discuss how these are affected by other parts of the climate such as winds, water currents, tectonics, volcanism, and by: Chinese historical documents are an extremely useful source from which much climate information can be retrieved if treated carefully.
This is especially relevant to the reconstruction of climate in East Asia in the last years as the Chinese has kept official chronicles since BC and China also represents a large portion of East Asia's : Pao Wang, Kuan-Hui Lin, Yi-Chun Liao, Shih-Yu Lee, Hsiung-Ming Liao, Pi-Ling Pai, I.
Chun Fan. Floods and droughts having major impact in terms of magnitude and areal extent are shown in Figures 1 and 2, having flood recurrence intervals between 25 and 50 years and in excess of 50 years are identified in Figure having drought recurrence intervals between 10 and 25 years and in excess of 25 years are identified in Figure 2.
Some areas of the nation are still plagued by continuing drought. The largest problem, however, is flooding. In the south, Typhoon Utor, Trami and other raging storms created deadly floods and landslides.
