AbstractThe main features of climate change, as well as the urbanization effects on climate change in South China (SC) are described. In SC daily maximum and minimum temperatures have increased significantly in the period from 1960 to 2005. However, the rate of increase for the period of 1984 to 2005 in SC was nearly double that of the global increase for the same period. Furthermore, from 1960 to 2005, precipitation exhibited a rising trend, but relative humidity was decreasing. Urbanization of the Pearl River Delta since 1984 significantly affected the daily minimum temperature, precipitation and relative humidity.
