Improved understanding of historical precipitation extremes is important to better explain their behavior, predict future occurrences, and inform planning and engineering design. The intensity, seasonality, and timing of these extremes have far-reaching consequences, and require a comprehensive analysis of both historical trends and projected...

Global warming impacts the hydrological cycle, affecting the seasonality and timing of extreme precipitation. Understanding historical changes in extreme precipitation occurrence is crucial for assessing their impacts. This study uses relative entropy to analyze historical changes in seasonality and timing of extreme daily precipitation...

Weather generators (WGs) based on temporal resampling algorithms are not able to generate new extremes with the same or a higher temporal resolution as the historical data series of the thus far <br/>observed precipitation. This is problematic for catchments with a time of concentration shorter than the resolution of the used data and conflicts...

Extreme rainfall brings substantial threats to lives, infrastructure, and the economy in cities. Radar rainfall nowcasting was proven able to provide forecasts up to 2 to 3 hours in advance on a catchment scale. However, an extensive evaluation of nowcasting skills for urban areas has not been performed yet. In this study, we selected 80 extreme...

Extreme precipitation can be characterized by the tail behavior of precipitation probability distributions.The tail contains the most extreme precipitation events and tells something about both the magnitude and frequency of these events. Here the heaviness amplification factor is used to represent the tail behavior. This research determines the...

It is well understood that precipitation extremes will increase in a warming climate. On (sub-)hourly timescales, the apparent scaling of precipitation extremes is stronger than expected from the Clausius-Clapeyron relation. Here, we focus on a common hypothesis which states that feedbacks from the local dynamics of clouds are responsible.<br/>...

This master thesis provides an approach to develop Adaptation Pathways to prevent local flooding of the Dutch national highway network, using the A2 between the Vught and Sint-Michielsgestel junctions as a case study. Local flooding as result of extreme precipitation has the highest urgency on the Dutch national highway network, due to its...

Aiming to estimate extreme precipitation forecast quantiles, we propose a nonparametric regression model that features a constant extreme value index. Using local linear quantile regression and an extrapolation technique from extreme value theory, we develop an estimator for conditional quantiles corresponding to extreme high probability...

During August 25-30, 2017, Hurricane Harvey stalled over Texas and caused extreme precipitation, particularly over Houston and the surrounding area on August 26-28. This resulted in extensive flooding with over 80 fatalities and large economic costs. It was an extremely rare event: the return period of the highest observed three-day...

Observations show that subdaily precipitation extremes increase with dew point temperature at a rate exceeding the Clausius-Clapeyron (CC) relation. The understanding of this so-called super CC scaling is still incomplete, and observations of convective cell properties could provide important information. Here the size and intensity of rain...
