5.0 out of 5 stars Scientific research spelled out for practical applications 28 Jun. 2013
By M. Cabral - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I highly recommend this book to water resource professionals and scientific researchers alike who are interested in the topic of place-specific future projections of rainfall intensity.

While global and regional climate models indicate that peak rainfall intensity is likely to increase in many world regions as global mean temperatures rise, it is anything but clear to water managers how to quantify such changes for their particular location. The problem is particularly relevant (and difficult) for urban flooding, where small catchments of low permeability surface respond rapidly to intense rainfall of durations down to 1 minute. Those responsible for testing the reliability of their urban stormwater drainage system for a 30-year (say) time horizon, are at a loss as to how to create the time series of local, fine-temporal resolution rainfall, to feed into their habitual drainage simulation models. In particular, how to create a rainfall time series that represents a design event with specified return period? A weather generator could possibly be used, but how to derive the IDF curves representing projected local future climate (where IDF = Iitensity-duration-frequency)? How can IDF curves be derived from regional climate model projections?

As a water resources professional who have worked my way through much of the literature around these topics, it was still challenging to digest it all down to the practical, on the ground solutions.

This book achieved this for me. The book puts together research results from hundreds of peer-reviewed publications in a clearly presented and digested way, to provide suggested practical solutions that are based on the best available science. I am excited about this book because of its usefulness. But also because of its spirit of open sharing of much scientific insight and genuine concern with real-world problems. It is much refreshing to me that the authors did not satisfy themselves with just having published their peer-reviewed manuscripts in the journals.
