About the Authors
  • Measurement, analysis and modeling of extreme precipitation events linked to floods is vital in understanding changing climate impacts and variability. This book provides methods for assessment of the trends in these events and their impacts. It also provides a basis to develop procedures and guidelines for climate-adaptive hydrologic engineering. Academic researchers in the fields of hydrology, climate change, meteorology, environmental policy and risk assessment, and professionals and policy-makers working in hazard mitigation, water resources engineering and climate adaptation will find this an invaluable resource. This volume is the first in a collection of four books on flood disaster management theory and practice within the context of anthropogenic climate change. The others are: Floods in a Changing Climate: Hydrological Modeling by P. P. Mujumdar and D. Nagesh Kumar, Floods in a Changing Climate: Inundation Modeling by Giuliano Di Baldassarre and Floods in a Changing Climate: Risk Management by Slodoban Simonović.

    • Presents a comprehensive treatment of precipitation measurement methods, estimation and analysis including new spatial interpolation methods
    • Covers joint probability methods dealing with precipitation and flooding events, downscaling methods, assessment of internal modes of climate (teleconnections) and their links to precipitation events
    • Provides extensive numerical examples and case studies to complement the variety of techniques and tools for assessment of precipitation trends
