Abstract

This study examines recent changes in annual and seasonal relative humidity variations in Jordan. The analysis indicates an increasing trend in relative humidity at different stations. The analysis shows a significant increasing trend at Amman Airport Meteorological (AAM) station with a rate of increase 0.13% per year. These increasing trends are statistically significant during summer and autumn seasons. Finally, a major change point in the annual relative humidity occurred in 1979 at AAM station.
