Since 1990 extensive funds have been spent on research in climate change. Although Earth Sciences, including climatology and hydrology, have benefited significantly, progress has proved incommensurate with the effort and funds, perhaps because these disciplines were perceived as " tools " subservient to the needs of the climate change enterprise rather than(More)

The Areal Reduction Factor (ARF) ?7 is a key parameter in the design for hydrologic extremes. For a basin of area A, r(A, D,) is the ratio between the area-average rainfall intensity over a duration D with return period T and the point rainfall intensity for the same D and T. Besides depending on A, D and possibly T, the ARF is affected by the shape of the(More)
