本報告對香港天文台自一八八四年成立以來在香港觀測所得的氣象數據進行了趨勢分析。研究顯示香港的氣象要素呈下列趨勢: 平均及平均最低表面氣溫上升,氣溫日際變化下降,寒冷日子減少,對流層底層溫度上升,對流層高層及平流層底層溫度下降,能見度下降,雲量增多,有雷暴出現的日子增加,太陽總輻射量減少及總蒸發量下降。引致上述趨勢的因素包括全球變暖和城巿化。
In this report, trend analyses were carried out onmeteorological observations made in Hong Kong since the establishmentof the Hong Kong Observatory in 1884.The following trends were observed: rise in meantemperature and mean minimum temperature at the surface, decrease indaily diurnal temperature range, decrease in the number of cold days,increase in lower tropospheric temperature, decrease in uppertropospheric and lower stratospheric temperatures, decrease in observedvisibility, increase in cloud amount, increase in the number of days withthunderstorms, decrease in global solar radiation, and decrease in totalevaporation in Hong Kong. Factors contributing to the observed trendsinclude global warming and urbanization.
