Tuesday, September 21, 2021. 2:00 PM. Webinar: Our Changing Precipitation: From Science to Application: Climate Science, Hydrology, and Planning (Part 1). Karen Metchis, ACQ; Daniel Wright, University of Wisconsin - Madison; Bilal Ayyub, University of Maryland and American Society of Civil Engineers; Charles Bodnar, Public Works Stormwater Engineering Center, VA Beach, VA. Sponsored by NOAA. Register here.
This five-session webinar series hosted by NOAA and the Water Research Foundation will contribute to the conversation on the science of precipitation and planning for the future for local planners. The webinars will convey in lay terms, and advance the conversation about, our current ability to project precipitation at temporal and spatial scales relevant for local water infrastructure decision making. They will also discuss some practical ways to take action to build resilience to climate change. In this session, you will learn about results of studies evaluating local and regional trends in extreme events, different approaches for evaluating future precipitation, an analysis of current State stormwater infrastructure standards, and a method being considered by the American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE) for a Climate-Resilient Infrastructure standard.
