  Urban rainfall runoff has become a topic of increasing importance in recent years, as a result of both the increase in impervious land area arising from constant urban growth and the effects of climate change on urban drainage (Denault et al., , Langeveld et al., , Mailhot et al., , Semadeni-Davies et al., , Willems, ). The Cited by:   Weather and climate changes caused by human activities (e.g., greenhouse gas emissions, deforestation, and urbanization) have received much attention because of their impacts on human lives as. MAUSAM, 68, 3 (July ), () () An analysis on the effects of urbanization on the local climate of three inland developing cites in East China.   Zhou et al. () presented evidence for a significant urbanization effect on climate based on analysis of land-use changes and surface temperature in Southeast China, which experienced rapid urbanization. The warming of urbanization effect nearly reaches °C per decade.

Weather and climate changes caused by human activities (e.g., greenhouse gas emissions, deforestation, and urbanization) have received much attention because of their impacts on human lives as well as scientific interests. The detection, understanding, and future projection of weather and climate changes due to urbanization are important subjects in the discipline of urban meteorology and. The effect of urbanization of Metro Manila, particularly on the amount of sensible heat flux, rainfall and temperature of selected urban and rural areas, was investigated using the Weather Research and Forecasting Version (WRFV) model. National Center for Environmental Prediction - Final (NCEP-FNL) grib1 data from to were used as inputs into the model for meteorological data. This article describes a study that is part of the climate-change project described in the overview article of this Integrated Watershed special collection (Hay et al. ).It is distinct from the other studies presented because it examines the hydrologic effect of changing land-cover patterns and the interaction of this effect with those created by climate change. urban may vary from country to country, which cautions us against a strict comparison of urbanization cross-nationally. The fundamental difference between urban and rural is that urban populations live in larger, denser, and more heterogeneous cities as opposed to .

If the urban rain effect was small, TRMM might not pick up enough data points to detect elevated rainfall totals over and downwind of cities. “But if we could use that satellite data in conjunction with other data sets, then at least we could look at many different cities around the . Results: The majority (n = 49, = 86%) of studies examined climate change and the urban heat island in isolation, with few (8) considering their combined effect. Urban growth was found to have a. 1. Introduction [2] Urban micro‐climates have long been recognised [Howard, ; Oke, ], and in the monitoring and detection of global climate change climatologists have gone to great lengths to remove or minimise the potential influence of urbanisation on the historical climate record [Parker, ].This is vital for trying to detect warming trends of the order °C per decade. WRF is used to test the sensitivity of simulation of this storm to different effects of urbanization and to different urban land-use scenarios.
