If I need to look at less frequent data I use the Probable Maximum Flood or Probable Maximum Precipitation data. When using one of the 4 standard SCS design storm distributions and the published rainfall frequencies, the design will usually be adequate for most actual storm events.

Human-caused climate change causes a variety of physical impacts on the climate physical impacts of climate change foremost include globally rising temperatures of the lower atmosphere, the land, and oceans. Temperature rise is not uniform, with land masses and the Arctic region warming faster than the global average. Effects on weather encompass . Global warming is the result of increased carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gases concentrations, and it is likely to have some climatic and weather hazards on the eco-environments worldwide [1,2,3,4], leading to losses of property and human lives [] due to floods, droughts, and e change is largely expressed by temperature and precipitation Author: Xiaogang Dong, Shiting Zhang, Junju Zhou, Jianjun Cao, Liang Jiao, Zhiyang Zhang, Yang Liu.   In , the United Nations’ Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change found that it is possible to limit global warming to degrees Celsius this century, but the world may have as little as. 1. Introduction. Estimates of Probable Maximum Precipitation (PMP) have been used for many years to derive a “maximum” loading for designs of high hazard infrastructure such as dams and nuclear power plant structures (Myers, , ICOLD, , Prasad et al., ).The PMP is most commonly used to derive an extreme flood using an appropriate model of the rainfall-runoff Cited by:

  Long term Precipitation and temperature variations are one of the main determinants of climate variability of one’s area. The aim of this study is to determine trends variation in climatic elements of temperature and precipitation in the southern zone of Tigray regional state, Ethiopia. The station is assumed for the study of climatic records over southern Author: Birhanu Hayelom, Yingjun Chen, Zinabu Marsie, Miseker Birega. 5 Use of OST in a Changing Climate. Future climate conditions are likely to affect water supply operations for New York City. Changes in the seasonality, frequency, duration, type (rain vs. snow), and magnitude of precipitation events and their effects on streamflow in the Catskill and Delaware watersheds over the last several decades have been detected in observational data . Although floods caused by precipitation from tropical cyclones are infrequent, these floods can represent the largest recorded peaks in a flood time series; hence, these floods are important contributors to estimates of the year and probable-maximum floods. It is important for the reader to understand clearly the objectives of these papers. They are not an attempt to provide accurate predictions of what is going to happen in Australia over the next few decades. Rather they represent sensitivity studies, designed to illustrate to what extent we as a nation are dependent on the climate and likely to be affected by climatic change, and attempts Cited by:
