Abstract
Based on the comprehensive meteorological drought index ( CI) , using data of daily temperature and precipitation of 75 weather stations which have more than 200mm precipitation a year,CI sequences and spatial and temporal distribution in spring and summer during 1961 - 2010 were built. It shows that: ( 1) Drought in spring and summer of central and eastern Inner Mongolia can be divided into three types: drought or not drought all over the central and eastern Inner Mongolia, anticorrelation of east and west part of drought, anticorrelation of north and south part of drought. ( 2) Drought in spring was reduce after 1980, but regional heavy drought in spring was increase; drought frequency in summer in Inner Mongolia increased. ( 3) Climate warming began in 1980s. Since then the precipitation distribution changed, which aggravated the summer drought.
