Analysis of the Precipitation Characteristics

PI: Shuhei Shinmura
Institution: Nagoya University, Japan
Abstract:
I want to analysis the changes of the precipitation characteristics between present and future climate. Many models have expected that it would occur global warming in the future climate because of the greenhouse effect gases which human beings have released. The impact of global warming seems to be so large that many aspects of climate would change dramatically.

If surface temperature increases, the amount of water vapor which air can hold would increase. So, it expected that hydrological cycle would change over the world. It would cause the changes of the precipitation characteristics. It is very important to estimate the changes of precipitation characteristics from the point of view of the disasters include floods and droughts. So, I want to analysis the changes of the precipitation characteristics between present and future climate.
