Inputs to water industry standard drainage modelling software need to consider how time series rainfall, of high temporal resolution, might change under future climates, and also whether there might be affects on the shape (profile) of the ‘design storm’ used, antecedent wetness assumptions and other technical rainfall modelling functions.
The RED-UP tool is an innovative time series perturbation tool that allows historic rainfall data to be perturbed to be representative of future climate. It helps the water industry to understand how changing rainfall patterns and intensities will affect storm overflow spill volumes and frequencies. In particular, RED-UP allows an easy to apply approach to synthesise future time series rainfall anywhere in the UK.
