Upcoming Webinar: Using Climate Change-Informed Rainfall Projections

Posted on Tuesday, November 30th, 2021 | Posted in Events, News

Michelle Miro, Ph.D., water resources engineer at the RAND Corporation, will present on using precipitation metrics in water quality planning activities such as TMDLs

The webinar will be held on January 11, 2022, 2-3 p.m. EST as part of NEIWPCC’s National 303(d)/TMDL Webinar Series.

Flooded streetClimate change is shifting precipitation patterns worldwide, with major impacts on water quality and efforts to restore impaired waters. As the pace of change accelerates, it will become increasingly important to consider projections of future precipitation in water quality protection and restoration efforts.

Miro’s presentation will focus on incorporating climate projections into intensity-duration-frequency (IDF) curves. She will demonstrate using future projected IDF curves developed for the Chesapeake Bay watershed as a case study to illustrate how to use climate projections and think about future climate scenarios and uncertainty for planning and design.

Register online for the webinar, which is free and open to the public. A webinar recording will be available online for those who cannot join on January 11.

Since 2016, NEIWPCC, through a grant from the EPA, has hosted a series of informational webinars for state, territorial, and tribal program staff working on pollution budgets in impaired waterways under section 303(d) of the Clean Water Act.

Past webinars feature presentations from a diverse array of experts on topics ranging from modeling tools to media relations skills. All previous webinar recordings, presentations, and supporting material are available in our archives. To propose a topic for a future webinar, submit an abstract here.
