Summary

It is known that serial correlation within time series at sites and cross-correlation among sites in a specific region will influence the ability of statistical tests to assess the field significance of trends over the region. However, serial and/or cross-correlation has been ignored in field trend-analyses. This study attempts to develop a methodology that takes into account both serial and cross-correlation in the assessment of the field significance of trends. The regional average Mann-Kendall (RAMK) statistic is used to represent the regional properties of trends at a regional scale. The null distribution of the RAMK statistic is derived on the basis that the joint probability distribution of in independent normal variables is [...]
