Intensification of short-duration rainfall extremes and implications for flash flood risks
Extreme heavy precipitation is increasing in frequency and intensity, and results from new global sub-daily datasets and high-resolution modelling suggest that precipitation extremes will intensify more than anticipated based upon theoretical considerations. Understanding this process is vital in advancing the theoretical knowledge necessary for a step change in regional prediction from understanding the nature and drivers of precipitation extremes.
This meeting will discuss theoretical considerations and datasets concerning extreme heavy precipitation, intensity, frequency and the risk of flash floods. The meeting will bring together scientists working in climate change, climate modelling, hydrology and a range of geosciences.
There is also an opportunity for early career scientists to present posters.
The meeting is free to attend; participants just have to cover their accommodation, catering, travel and subsistence.
Abstract submission deadline: 13 December 2019
