A method is developed in this study to monitor and detect extreme precipitation events. For a rainfall event to be severe, it should last for a long period and affect a wide region while maintaining a strong intensity. However, if the duration is inappropriately taken as too long and the region is inappropriately taken as too wide, then the averaged intensity might be too weak. There should be a balance among the three quantities. Based upon understanding of the issue, the authors proposed a simple mathematical model, which contains two reasonable constraints. The relation of the "extreme" intensity with both duration and region (EIDR) is derived. With the prescribed baseline extreme intensities, the authors calculate the relative intensities with the data. Through comparison among different time periods and spatial sizes, one can identify the event that is most extreme, with its starting time, duration, and geographic region being determined. Procedures for monitoring the extreme event are provided. As an example, the extreme event contained in the 1991 persistent heavy rainfall over east China is detected. © 2017 American Meteorological Society.

By using NCEP–NCAR daily reanalysis data for June–August of 1948–2009, the synoptic situation of the doubleblocking high pressure process over the Ural Mountains–Sea of Okhotsk region was identified objectively, and the climatic characteristics and dynamic mechanism during the double blockings were also investigated. The results suggest that the Urals–Okhotsk double-blocking high experienced obviously an abrupt change around 1977. After the change, the occurrence frequency and number of sustained days of the blocking high reduced significantly. Moreover, the zonal spacing between the Urals blocking and the Okhotsk blocking also decreased, while their meridional locations did not change much. The double blockings became strengthened in general, and the blocking high over the Sea of Okhotsk extended northward evidently. However, during the process without double-blocking activities, the intensity and location of the double-blocking high showed no noticeable variation before and after the abrupt change. In addition, dynamic diagnosis shows that after the abrupt change, the energy of the double-blocking high mainly propagated vertically from low to high levels, and transferred horizontally from low to high latitudes; whereas, previously, before the abrupt change, this occurred from high to low latitudes. Meanwhile, the development of a low pressure system was fueled between the double blockings, which meant that the double-blocking activity was beneficial to the maintenance and development of the Northeast China cold vortex. In short, diagnosis of the wave energy has provided us with a better explanation of the life cycle characteristics of this double-blocking phenomenon before and after 1977. © 2017, The Chinese Meteorological Society and Springer-Verlag GmbH Germany.

Using the data observed with ASD FieldSpec Pro FR spectroradiometer based on a trial with various levels of drought stress during different growth periods of maize in Jinzhou, Liaoning Province, the variation characteristics of maize canopy hyperspectral reflectance were investigated and inversion models on soil water content considering spectral parameters were established. The results showed that, after drought stress during the period from seven leaves to jointing, the spectral reflectance within spectral bands of 750 to 1400 nm, the amplitude and the area of red edge decreased and the time of their response to drought stress was shorter, and differed from those un-der well-watered condition, while the reflectance within the spectral bands from 350 to 750 nm and from 1400 to 2300 nm demonstrated an increasing trend. As far as inversion methods, the inversion error of soil water content with regression method based on hyperspectral reflectance was smaller than that of first derivative spectra. Moreover, the inversion accuracy of soil water content at the 10 cm depth was higher than that at the depth of 30 cm. © 2016, editorial Board of Chinese Journal of Ecology. All Rights Reserved.

Urban areas were significant contributors to global carbon dioxide emissions. The eddy covariance (EC) was used to measure carbon dioxide (CO2) concentration and flux data at urban area in Shenyang. This research analyzed the characteristics of atmospheric CO2 concentration and flux in October 2008 to November 2008 period before and in the heating period. The results showed that the daily variation of CO2 concentration was two-peak curve. The first peak time appeared as same as sunrise time, while the second peak time impacted by vehicles and heating. The result of CO2 flux showed that urban atmospheric CO2 was net emissions, vegetation photosynthesis absorbed CO2 of traffic, the CO2 flux peak appeared at 17:15-18:15 in the heating period, CO2 emission increased 29.37 g · (m2 · d)-1 in the heating period than that before the heating period; there was corresponding relationship between CO2 flux and the time when temperature peak and sensible heating flux (Hc) turn positive. The results also indicated that atmospheric CO2 concentration and its flux were affected seriously by both wind direction and carbon sources.

Based on the surface observation data, this study established the time series of aerosol optical depth (AOD) of Huangshi city in Hubei Province in recent 60 years by using climate trend analysis and correlation analysis. The relationship between AOD and precipitation was investigated. The results showed that AOD increased significantly in Huangshi city in recent 60 years, with the maximum in 1991. The numbers of precipitation days and light rain days showed obvious decrease, while the numbers of moderate and heavy rain days increased and the change of rainstorm days was not significant. Light rain precipitation decreased with the significant increase of AOD, while the change trend of moderate precipitation and above was not obvious. In summary, the increase of AOD in Huangshi city in recent 60 years had impact on number of rainy days and precipitation, while the correlation remained to be further studied. ©, 2015, Science Press.

In order to study the temporal variation of haze and fog in Shenyang, haze and fog times were determined from the hourly visibility, particle concentration, relative humidity and weather patterns, observed for one whole year from 1 June 2009 to 31 May 2010. Based on the experimental criteria and definitions, the haze times account for 53.9% of the total observations; far higher than the fog proportion of 8.4%. Considering the temporal variation, haze occurs most frequently in winter and fog reaches a peak in summer. They both appear comparatively frequently in autumn, while rarely in spring. The seasonal variation of particles is the same as that of haze, which means that haze is closely associated with air pollution and visibility. Haze is definitely an indicator of the city air quality. Haze times from mild to severe grade account for 72.1%, 18.2%, 6.5% and 3.2% of the total observational times. The proportion of medium and severe grade haze times is rather low. It can be seen that human health has not been affected seriously in Shenyang, but everyone should take health precautions in autumn and winter.

Temporal and spatial characteristics of haze days with varied intensity and the possible climatic factors have been analyzed by applying meteorological data from 52 surface weather stations in Liaoning Province between 1961 and 2013. In terms of spatial distribution, there is a high-value center located in Shenyang City and two sub-high-value centers in the southwest of Jinzhou City and in the east of Chaoyang City, where annual total haze events generally exceed 50 days. The number of haze days in the western and northeastern mountainous areas is the lowest with less than 10 days a year. Haze events are more frequently observed in winter and autumn, accounting for over 60% of annual total, followed by summer and least frequently in spring. Averaged number of annual haze days in Liaoning Province have a significant increasing trend of 3.5 d/decade during 1961-2013. Days with slight, mild and moderate haze increase significantly, but the days with severe haze have no significant change. Unfavorable climate conditions exacerbated the occurrence of haze events. Significantly negative correlation is found between haze days and precipitation days, and the precipitation days show an obvious decreasing trend in the province, probably reducing the wet-depositing capacity of atmospheric pollutants. On the other hand, the reduced mean wind speed and strong wind days lead to the reduction of pollutants diffusion capacity. ©, 2015, Science Press. All right reserved.

The monthly, annual, and inter-decade variations of heat island effect in inner and outer suburbs of Shenyang and their relationships with urbanization were analyzed, based on the air temperature data from 1961 to 2008. It was indicated that the monthly and annual heat island effect was higher in inner suburb than in outer suburb, and decreased from inner suburb to outer suburb. The variation trend of monthly heat island effect in inner and outer suburbs was similar from March to November, but in contrary from December to next February, possibly due to the effects of heating in winter. The annual heat island effect in both inner and outer suburbs had an increasing trend before 2000 but a decreasing trend after 2000, and was significantly positively correlated with the green land area, population, and established construction area before 2000 (P<0. 05), but significantly negatively correlated with them after 2000 (P<0. 05), the correlation degree being 0. 43, 0. 52, and 0. 26, respectively.

In this study, the soil column experiment was adopted to investigated the release characteristic of P from soil by citric acid leaching. The results showed that the P release characteristics were different from each other under various citrate concentrations. At high concentration (50 mM) treatment, P concentration of effluents increased rapidly with effluent volume at the beginning, reached the maximum value after approximately 150 ml solution had passed through the columns. For the column treated with 5 mM of citric acid, the P in leachates was increased gradually to the maximum concentration, and then approached a relatively stable level during the 1000-3050 ml effluent volume. For low concentration (0.5 mM) treatment, the level of P in the effluents has always been very low, though a small peak was observed during the leaching. ©(2014) Trans Tech Publications, Switzerland.

Based on the surface meteorological data from 194 weather stations located in the Northeast of China during 1961~2013, temporal and spatial characteristics of haze days and haze with varied intensity have been analyzed. In terms of spatial distribution, there are two high-value centers located in the central Liaoning Province and north central Heilongjiang Province respectively, where annual total haze events generally exceed 50days. The least haze events occur in the west of Jilin Province with less than 2days per year.Furthermore, the spatial distribution of varied intensity (slight, mild, moderate and severe) haze days is approximately consistent with that of the total haze days.Haze events are more frequently observed in winter (57.9%), followed by autumn and they are least frequently in springs. Average number of annual haze days in study area has a significant increasing trend of 2.9d/decade during 1961~2013 with greatest increase occurring during 1980~2000. Days with slight,mild, moderate and severe haze have also increased, but mild, moderate and severe haze days reduced slightly in the 21st century compared with the 1980s. © 2016, Editorial Board of China Environmental Science.
