Project

Spatio-temporal modelling of flood causing rain events in future climate

Publisher

Location

Greater Copenhagen area

Climate change is of great importance for urban water management today as the infrastructure planning horizon is often very long. Significant parts of the urban drainage systems is dimensioned using models that use rainfall time series as input. this creates some challenges for considerations of climate change as climate model output generally is much coarser than this.

In this project the focus is on building spatial statistical models for the precipitation gauge network to better characterize how a flood causing event appear when recorded as a number of concurrent point measurements and, when these situations are isolated, make statistical models that link them to the (regional) climate scale using climate reanalysis data.
