Climate changes have significantly altered the global precipitation pattern in recent years, resulting in uneven temporal and spatial distributions of precipitation, and even precipitation polarization. Taiwan, located
in a subtropical climatic zone, experiences discernible dry and wet seasons, making the polarization of precipitation
in the country much more obvious. Since stream flow is strongly influenced by precipitation, such polarization results
in great stream flow differences between the wet and dry seasons. Thus, it is essential to investigate the trend and variability of stream flow. Little research has been done on trend characteristic analysis of annual average flow in the
Taiwan area. This study focused on stream flow data gathered over 30 years at 34 stations located in 4 water resource
districts of Taiwan. The Mann-Kendall test was employed in the trend analysis of annual average flow, while the
trend slope was assessed using the Theil-Sen estimator, thereby calculating long-term variation in flow at every station. Our observations showed no remarkable flow trend variations in South Taiwan, while only two out of eight flow
stations in north Taiwan exhibited significant trend oscillations, namely Ximen Bridge and Fu-Shan stations in Lanyang and Danshui rivers, respectively In central Taiwan, two out of six stations, i.e., Ta-Lu-keng and Sung-Mao stations in Houlong and Dajia rivers, respectively, showed markedly increasing trends. Among 11 flow stations in east
Taiwan, Chih-Pen and Ma-An-Chi stations in Zhiben and Hualian rivers, respectively, demonstrated significant flow
strengthening, whereas Yen-Ping station in Beinan river reflected the opposite behavior. The results of this study
provide references for future water resource planning in hydrology studies at the regional scale.

對臺灣地區整體之趨勢特性進行評估,本研究挑選出臺灣地區四個水資源分區內,流量記錄時間達 30 年以上
共 34 個河川流量站,以 Mann-Kendall 檢定法進行年平均流量的趨勢分析,並以 Theil-Sen 斜率推估法進行趨
果;北部地區 8 個流量站中僅蘭陽溪流域的西門橋站及淡水河流域的福山站具有顯著趨勢;中部地區 6 個流
量站中,後龍溪流域的打鹿坑站及大甲溪流域的松茂站皆為顯著上升之趨勢;東部地區 11 個河川流量站中,
知本溪流域的知本 (3) 站及花蓮溪流域的馬鞍溪站為顯著上升趨勢,而卑南溪流域的延平站為顯著下降趨勢。
