Keywords:analysis, climate change, component, relative humidity, Kirkuk Governorate
The research aims to analyze climatic changes and their role in changes in relative humidity in the Kirkuk region, using statistical methods (M-h-t) in order to identify the extent of the impact of these changes on the reality of the earth and the resulting negative effects on water security, economy, agriculture ... etc. (seasonal change) and the second (annual change). And that the study concluded that there is a clear change in the relative humidity as it tends towards decreasing in all study stations, and this is consistent with what was found by local, Arab and international research on the change in the relative humidity of the earth due to the lack of rain and high temperatures in the study area, and that all stations recorded a spatial and seasonal change, as Makhmur station recorded the highest annual negative seasonal change by (-0.118%), with a change during the study period by (-0.3658%) in the summer, and with an annual change of (-0.3658%). -0.186%, with a change during the study period by (-0.5766%) within the study area. As for the studies and researches concerned with climate change, it confirmed in its report that the Earth is witnessing a significant increase in the general rate of temperature, and this is what results in the exacerbation of the phenomenon of global warming and its climatic effects during the last decades.
