Weather radar rainfall for design of urban storm water systems

Research output: Contribution to book/anthology/report/conference proceedingArticle in proceedingResearchpeer-review

Abstract

Long continuous series of high-resolution radar rainfall series provides valuable information on spatial and temporal variability of rainfall, which can be used in design of urban drainage systems. In design of especially large drainage systems with complex flow patterns (and potentially surface flooding), simple design methods assuming flow stationarity and uniformity as well as rainfall homogeneity over a catchment might prove insufficient. This work presents an alternative by developing spatial-temporal rainfall statistics of radar rainfall data as well as storm catalogues for design of complex urban drainage systems.
