Spatial-Temporal Rainfall Modelling with Climate Change Scenarios
This page contains links to other organisations involved in the
project, as well as to related pages elsewhere.
The work is being carried out jointly with researchers in the
Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering at Imperial

Extensive research is being done into the use of climate models to
inform scenarios of future climate for hydrological applications. Some
relevant pages are as follows:
Weather scenarios for investigation
of Impacts and
eXTremes). Development of weather generators based on
UKCIP02 climate change scenarios.
- FloodRiskNet is a
cross-disciplinary network looking into all aspects of flood risk,
bringing together representatives from UK academia, industry,
government and professional organisations.
- The IPCC
(Intergovernmental Panel on
Climate Change) home
page. Access to reports summarising official thinking regarding future
- The IPCC
Data Distribution Centre at the University of East Anglia gives
information on climate model scenarios, along with limited data from a
range of models.
(Modelling the Impact of
Climate Extremes). Identifies and
catalogues extremes in observed and modelled climate data, and uses
extreme value theory to assess future changes in extremes.
(Prediction of Regional scenarios
and Uncertainties for Defining
change risks and Effects). Intercomparison of
various regional climate models, and their use to develop projections
of future European climate.
Model). A decision support tool, written by Rob Wilby
and Christian Dawson, for assessing local climate change impacts using
a statistical downscaling technique.
(STAtistical and Regional dynamical
Downscaling of EXtremes of European
regions). Intercomparison of downscaling methods for constructing
scenarios of extremes, as well as production of future scenarios of
extremes for Europe.
Uncertainty, Risk and
Vulnerability in Europe). Develop a
probabilistic framework for the treatment of future climate scenarios
and their impacts.
(Statistical Time Series
Rainfall Data Software). This is a software package for
generating generating rainfall sequences at time resolutions down to 5
- UKCIP (the
UK Climate Impacts
Programme). "Provides scenarios that show how
our climate might change and co-ordinates research on dealing with our
INfluence of CLimate change in
Europe). Examines the impacts on European water
resources of climate change and variability, using the latest
atmospheric model outputs to generate climate change scenarios.
