Abstract

Rapid changes in Land Use Land Cover (LULC) practices, burning of fossil fuels, change in food habits of man and a variety of man induced reasons are pushed the global climate in to an unsafe state. Climate is the expected weather conditions at a given location over time and can be measured at many geographic scales like cities, countries or the entire globe as a unit. Change in average temperatures and average number of rainy days in an area will influences the quantum of precipitation, frequency of droughts and food crops production. Increasing global surface temperatures are very likely to lead to changes in precipitation and atmospheric moisture because of changes in atmospheric circulation, a more active hydrological cycle, and increases in the water-holding capacity throughout the atmosphere. The study was made at Regidi-Amadalavalasamandal of Srikakulam district, A. P. for 4 Years during 2014-15 to 2017-18. Results shows that changing patterns and variance in precipitation at regional level is significant, this change is influencing on the overall food production at the study site. This study revealing that wet areas become wetter, dry and arid areas become drier. This changing pattern calls for renewed efforts at adaptation to climate change, as the changing precipitation pattern will also affect the regional availability of food supply. To identify the gaps this study was conducted and recorded the data on changing patterns of precipitation at the regional level, thus indicating that climate change is already a reality. Such a study is required not only for environmentalists but also for policy makers. The details were given in the results and discussions.

Key Words
