Potential future changes in heavy rainfall events in Europe simulated by the HIRHAM regional climate model

W. May, B. O. Christensen & J. H. Christensen
In this study potential future changes in the characteristics of daily rainfall events, in particular of heavy rainfall events, in Europe as a consequence of the anticipated future increase in the atmospheric greenhouse gas concentrations is investigated. This is done on the basis of a mini-ensemble of simulations for the recent and the future climate with the HIRHAM RCM. HIRHAM simulates pronounced decreases in the number of wet days in all but northern Europe, in...
