Climate Change and the Hydraulic Design of Sewerage Systems Volume I: Climate Change Effects on Rainfall; IC - Seasonality Study

Price: £16  

This report is part of a major study on the impact of climate change on sewerage hydraulic design The project was wide ranging, but with a principle focus on the performance of sewerage systems under future (year 2080) rainfall conditions and what changes might be needed in the hydraulic design of sewerage systems to address any problems that climate change might pose. Other issues include, a summary of international drainage practice and predicted changes in sea levels and river flows. This report is one of 13 documents collated in 4 volumes. This document is one of three in volume I - Climate Change Effects on Rainfall. The other reports in volume I cover: - A sensitivity analysis of the differences between the predictions of the UKCIP98 models and the UKCIP02 models. - A report summarising the work carried out by the Met Office in producing predictions for extreme rainfall of the future based on the UKCIP98 Medium-High Scenario and the production of present day and future rainfall maps. Comparison of rainfall from FSR and FEH methods was also carried out. This report extends the work carried out comparing the UKCIP98 and UKCIP02 rainfall data breaking the information down into seasons. This was needed due to the major differences in seasonal rainfall patterns that the later model predicts and the importance of seasonal issues in sewer system performance.
