    This paper investigated the spatio-temporal trends and homogeneity analysis of rainfall over the Komadugu-Yobe basin using data from Nigerian Meteorological Agency (NiMet), Department of National Meteorology Niger (DMN) and a 10 km resolution gridded observation data from Princeton University (PGF) for the period 1979 and 2015. The data, analysed at the annual and seasonal (wet and dry seasons) timescales, were subjected to Mann-Kendal including modified Mann-Kendall trend test after testing for autocorrelation. Test for homogeneity was performed on the data using Pettitt’s, Buishand’s, Standard Normal Homogeneity Test and van Belle and Hughes’ test. An overall homogenous trend of rainfall series was observed in the basin for all the seasons considered using van Belle and Hughes’ homogeneity trend test. The global rainfall trend increases in the dry season and .. View More»
