stochastic modelling downscaling precipitation climate change
 
Project description

This research project will develop improved techniques for downscaling precipitation extremes under changing climate conditions, by means of stochastic rainfall generators. The improved techniques will be validated for use in hydrodynamic impact studies in Flanders.
