[A-AS05] Precipitation Extreme

Wed. May 23, 2018 1:45 PM - 3:15 PM 106 (1F International Conference Hall, Makuhari Messe)

Predicting future hydro-meteorological conditions due to human-induced climate change is a major concern. In particular, the change of extreme events are focused by the international scientific and political frameworks, such as WCRP and IPCC. Especially, heavy precipitation often induces disasters such as flood and landslides, and drought is often linked to food crisis. Japanese science community has lead establishment of a dense network of rain-gauge observation such as AMeDAS and developing accurate grid precipitation data over Asia such as APHRODITE as well as high-resolution climate modeling and satellite precipitation estimates. Facing the urgent task of evaluating, forecasting precipitation extremes and mitigating consequence disasters, there seems to be some gaps between the communities. Hence, we propose a session with focusing on extreme precipitation to assemble scientists of tacking this issue with different methods. We also welcome topics on evaluating related meteorological parameters such as snowfall and temperature and studying disasters which are related to extreme precipitation (e.g. typhoon, landslides and drought).

3:00 PM - 3:15 PM
