Reducing uncertainty in future extreme precipitation (RUFEP)

Description

Current estimates of extreme precipitation impacts from climate change range from a 20-60% increase over the next decade, but are based on climate model simulations at larger spatial and temporal scales than what is relevant for typical urban drainage systems. Thus this PhD fellowship will focus on reducing the uncertainty in future projections of extreme precipitation and quantifying the spatial and temporal scaling properties of extreme precipitation characteristics from observations and climate model simulations. This calls for a strategic collaborative research collaboration mobilizing both urban water and climatology expertise, which are among the key competencies at DTU Environment and the Danish Meteorological Institute.
