Abstract:

The climate change has become a global concerned and this situation is likely to continue even if concentration of all greenhouse gases is kept constant that is at the level of 2000 AD.The Palamau region of Jharkhand is characterized and well known for its climatic variability. Therefore impact is significant in terms of climate change. The climate of Palamau region has now been shifted from sub- humid to semi-arid and thus agricultural activity has been greatly affected. The analysis shows that the gap between maximum and minimum temperature has widen due to increase in maximum temperature and decline in minimum temperature. The temporal analysis indicates that evaporation and RH (daily) has increased during recent years, and similarly the water deficit has also increased during the same years. In these circumstances there is need to re-orientation of planting time of crops particularly wheat and chickpea, selection of short duration and drought tolerance varieties and crop diversification to mitigate the problems arised due to climate change.


Keywords: Climate change, Palamau region, Shifting of climate, Temperature relative humidity.
