Climate Change and the Hydraulic Design of Sewerage Systems Volume II: Rainfall Data Production & Analysis; IIB - Time-Series Rainfall - Disaggregation

Price: £27  

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 two in volume II - Rainfall Data Production & Analysis. The other report in volume II covers: - The development and evaluation of a time series rainfall tool to produce future rainfall using data from the Hadley model. 100 years of present and future data were produced for 7 regions across the UK. This report covers the work carried out on developing a tool (Cascade) for use in producing high resolution rainfall data from a time series. This tool uses various measures of rainfall characteristics to produce representative rainfall through the seasons. The tool was compared favourably to StormPac which is the only available tool currently available on the market.
