By using the data from the Tropical Cyclone Yearbooks, changes of landfall tropical cyclones (TCs) in China over the past 58 years (1949 - 2006) were analyzed, in terms of their tracks, numbers, duration, intensity, probability distributions as well as in-terannual and decadal variabilities. The results indicate that the landfall TCs numbers have decreased but the numbers hardly changed for typhoons. The frequency decreased evidently for tropical depressions and (strong) tropical storms landed in southern China, but the variation of frequency of TCs over eastern China is not obvious. Over the past 58 years, the most northern latitude of landfall TCs for each year tends to be more southward, and the most southern latitude turns to be more northward, resulting in a decrease of the south-north range of landfall TCs, i.e., more TCs tend to make landfall between 23°N and 35°N, and fewer in the north of 35°N and south of 23°N. The landfall season is decreased by about one month. The intensity of landfall TCs has increased, and the intensi-ty difference between the strongest and the weakeat TCs reduced. Furthermore, the skew of intensity shows an upward tendency, in-dicating the proportion of stronger landfall TCs has increased. Finally, the annual averaged intensity of landfall TCs has enhanced for both southern China and eastern China, with a stronger increase appearing in the former than the latter.
