On the issue of trend and noise in the estimation of extreme rainfall properties

W. Rauch & S. De Toffol
Up until today extreme rainfall properties are frequently applied in sewer design guidelines. Uncertainty in the estimation of such properties will hence directly influence the dimensions of sewers, structures and pumps. In this paper the issue of potential trend and noise in the estimation is investigated for 6 rain series from ranging from 19 to 55 years in duration. Different to recent research that predicts a - climate induced \342\200\223 increase in heavy precipitation no...
