Abstract
Precipitation is the main dynamic factors of soil erosion on the loess plateau region; the spatial and temporal distribution of precipitation has a great impact on the process of runoff and sediment yield. Luoyugou watershed is a typical small one of the third sub-region in gully and hilly regions of the Loess Plateau, which was laid the precipitation stations and the transfer stations for rainfall, runoff, sediment observation since the mid-1980s by the Tianshui Soil and Water Conservation Experimental station of Yellow River Conservancy Committee, who carried out the rule of basin soil erosion research. In this paper, on the basis of the observation data of Luoyugou watershed since 1985 to 2010, the precipitation features of the Luoyugou basin in recent 26 years were analyzed. And the analyzing results indicated that: The average annual rainfall of Luoyugou watershed is 548.4 mm, and the interannual and in-year precipitation of the watershed change greatly, uneven distribution of time and space; MK test showed that there is a slight increasing trend of the annual area rainfall, but is insignificant, and three break points occurred during the period on the base of the observed annual rainfall data. Meanwhile, relation between the annual precipitation, runoff and sediment yield was analyzed, and it turned out that the annual precipitation and annual runoff had a higher related degree. In conclusion, the rainfall has its own characteristics and has obvious impact on runoff and sediment yield. However, more study on the features of precipitation under different scales is required in the future.
