Regional and seasonal variation in future climate: is green roof one solution?
2011 (English)Conference paper, Presentation (Refereed)
In this study, regional climate data was used to investigate the trend of changes for some climatic parameters, i.e. temperature, precipitation and maximum hourly precipitation in four different regions in Sweden. The general trend shows that Sweden will have warmer and wetter climatic conditions by 2100; however, the seasonal changes will affect the system differently, which makes them one of the main factors to be considered. The climatic data was used to determine the probable magnitude of changes by 2100 and to investigate the climate change impacts on urban drainage systems. The problems arising due to such changes were discussed regionally and seasonally and finally BMP methods, as an alternative way, to mitigate the climate change impacts were considered. As an example, green roof was applied to different urbanized conditions to estimate the approximate reduction of the extra water into the drainage system. As well as to investigate how much each of the BMP methods (green roof as an example for opening the further studies) could be useful for city planners towards more secure and sustainable cities in the future against the climate change.
