Abstract

To disclose the relation between the sandstorms change and the temperature changes, a case study in the desert area in northwestern china is investigated. The results showed that: the instability of climate in Minqin desert area is enhancing in the arid desert region in northwest China. Mainly as follows: Variation the annual extreme maximum temperature increasing. Variation of extreme minimum temperature also an increasing trend. Average visibility of sandstorms significantly reduced and the fluctuation trend increased significantly. In the past two years, there have been some unusual climate events in other regions in China. They reflect the fact that the deterioration of the stability of the climate change. The instability of the climate change impact on human life and production is increased more than global warming, more worthy of global concern.
