In these ecosystems, more extreme rainfall regimes, characterized by larger events and longer intervals between precipitation events, may lead to a reduction in the number of days when soils are anoxic and therefore may increase the rates of some aerobic ecosystem processes (figure 5; Jensen et al. , Emmett et al. ).

A little more than 40 years ago, Washington had no idea what it was in for. The forecast for Feb. 19,was for a moderate snow event, but the region awoke to. On October 3rd, the Puget Sound Climate Preparedness Collaborative co-hosted a half day workshop with the Washington State Department of Natural Resources (WA DNR) on their forthcoming climate resilience strategy and local level needs related to climate preparedness.

Examples include precipitation and streamflow extremes, as well as economic damage associated with such extreme events, with consideration of trends and dependence on patterns in atmosphere.

These evaluations provide useful in-formation regarding the types of precipitation events that are observed in the Pacific Northwest and the frequency of occurrence of extreme events.

“The attribution of extreme events to AGW depends on a credible attribution of global climate change to AGW. At best, we have “very likely” of “most” (>50%). How that uncertainty is integrated into extreme event attribution here is not at all clear.” Argues a tautology.

AGW and anthropogenic extreme events are inextricably the same. The annual precipitation totals are averages based on weather data collected from to for the NOAA National Climatic Data Center.

W hen it comes to climate and geography, Washington State is a study in contrasts. While there is a somewhat common perception that it rains all the time in Washington, Seattle actually ranks 44th among major U.S. cities, getting less rainfall annually than Boston, New York, Houston and Miami.

The state’s geography is diverse and spectacular. Recently, however, the increasing frequency and intensity of extreme rainfall events in New York has resulted in damage to our communities, businesses, and natural systems.

Of additional concern, the best-available scientifi c projections of precipitation trends suggest that extreme rainfall events will continue into the future – more of.

The resulted rainfall and runoff IDF curves provide more reliable, forward looking, and spatially resolved characteristics of storm events in Washington State that can assist local decision makers and engineers to thoroughly review and/or update the current design standards for urban and rural stormwater management infrastructure.

Given the Earth's surface area, that means the globally averaged annual precipitation is millimetres (39 in).drive precipitation events in proportion to their intensity, amplifying the most extreme events by the largest amount.

Overall, changes in atmospheric circula-tion drive larger increases in more extreme precipitation events compared with less ex-treme ones. The most extreme events could increase at or above the rate of moisture by:
