Quantification of climate change impacts on flood probability in urban areas and adaptation measures using climate model data with a high spatial resolution and a semi-distributed rainfall runoff model
The temporal and spatial resolution of climate data computed with the new generation of climate models opens new possibilities in the research of climate change impacts and their mitigation, including impacts on flood frequency and magnitude. In the presented study, climate model data and a semi-distributed hydrological model are used to develop a new concept, which is applied to assess the effectiveness of flood adaptation measures in urban areas. This research was performed within the joint project KLIMZUG-Nord for a case study within the metropolitan area of Hamburg.
