The study of water resources is considered to be of great important for Jordan. The great environmental challenge that Jordan faces today is the scarcity of water. Water resources in Jordan mainly depend on precipitation which is subject to great variability. Meanwhile, there is an observed population growth, so there is great demand for water. This study has objective, to stand on the situation of water resources by analyzing rainfall temporally and spatially. For this purpose, scientific methodologies are applied for the first time in Jordan in such climatic and environmental study. The second objective of this work is to study the environmental and climatic impacts by studying dry and wet spells with their geographical distribution. The thesis is divided into six chapters. The study used regression analysis for studying spatial distribution of rainfall. In addition the semivariogram technique is used to the regional dependency of rainfall phenomena. Harmonic analysis is used to study the precipitation climatology in Jordan. Drought is discussed as an environment and climatic impact of water resources. The study gives conclusion and recommendations in the light of the study.
