Influence of urbanization on trends of annual, seasonal, and short duration rainfall amounts in Houston

P. Hooshialsadat, S.J. Burian, J.M. Shepherd & F.G. Edwards
Past studies of precipitation in urban areas have suggested cities influence spatial and temporal rainfall patterns. However, in the United States (U.S.), quantification and statistical verification of the modification of long-term trends of rainfall characteristics by urbanization has been difficult because of sparse spatial coverage of rain gauges and insufficient record lengths. The data limitations have been reduced during the second half of the twentieth century as numerous cities in the U.S. experienced rapid growth...
