The final webinar in the Future Hydrology in a Changing Environment series on 25 November (14.00-15.00) by Professor Hayley Fowler is on Anthropogenic intensification of short-duration rainfall extremes. Hayley is a hydroclimatologist with over 15 years’ experience in analysing the impacts of climate change and variability on hydrological systems. She is currently Professor of Climate Change Impacts in the Water Resource Systems Engineering Group at the University of Newcastle.

As Hayley explains: “There has been a recent surge in studies which aim to understand short-duration rainfall extremes, due to their impacts on flash floods, landslides and debris flows and the potential for these to worsen with global warming. This has been led over the past six years in a concerted international effort by the INTENSE crosscut of the GEWEX (Global Energy and Water Exchanges) Hydroclimatology Panel. This seminar will present a summary of the findings of INTENSE and considers the gaps that remain in understanding the potential impact of climate change on short-duration rainfall extremes.”
