ABSTRACT
The article presents an analysis of the overall trend of changes in the frequencies of major extreme climatic events in mainland China from 1956-2009, with the use of an Integrated Extreme Climatic Index (IECI). The study found that in the context of significant global warming, there was either a significant decrease or marginal increase in the frequencies of the most harmful extreme climate events in mainland China, resulting in an insignificant long-term trend in the IECI series.
