Variation of meteorological parameters over Saudi Arabia (1990‐2006)

Variation of meteorological parameters over Saudi Arabia (1990‐2006) The annual and seasonal variation of meteorological parameters has been studied for twenty stations in Saudi Arabia. The contour maps showed temperature and rainfall increasing and wind speed decreasing trends with decreasing latitudes. The mean temperature varied between a minimum of 8.4°C and a maximum of 34.61°C while overall mean was 23.95°C. The Mean, minimum and maximum values of pressure were 932.12, 923.3 and 944.6mb, respectively. The corresponding relative humidity values were 42.7, 78.5 and 21.5%, respectively. The empirical models developed for the prediction of monthly mean values of individual parameters were able to estimate the values with acceptable accuracy http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png World Journal of Science, Technology and Sustainable Development Emerald Publishing

Abstract

The annual and seasonal variation of meteorological parameters has been studied for twenty stations in Saudi Arabia. The contour maps showed temperature and rainfall increasing and wind speed decreasing trends with decreasing latitudes. The mean temperature varied between a minimum of 8.4°C and a maximum of 34.61°C while overall mean was 23.95°C. The Mean, minimum and maximum values of pressure were 932.12, 923.3 and 944.6mb, respectively. The corresponding relative humidity values were 42.7, 78.5 and 21.5%, respectively. The empirical models developed for the prediction of monthly mean values of individual parameters were able to estimate the values with acceptable accuracy
