In this report ten year simulations with the rainfall generator for t he R hine. The method of nearest‐neighbor resampling is extended to simultaneous simulation of daily precipitation and temperature at multiple locations over a large area (25 stations in the German part of the Rhine basin).

Chapter 7 (Page no: ) Increasing climate variability in the Rhine Basin: business as usual? This paper discusses climate change impacts and adaptation strategies relating to the water resources, food security and environmental preservation of the Rhine Basin . Estimation of extreme floods in the river Rhine basin by combining precipitation-runoff modelling and a rainfall generator. In: Proceedings International Conference on Flood Estimation, M. Sperafico et al. (Eds.) March 6–8, , Berne, Switzerland, pp. –, CHR-Report No. II–17, International Commission for the Hydrology of the Rhine. The Rhine basin comprises an area of approximately , km 2, of which the major part (, km 2) lies upstream of Lobith. About 51% of the Rhine basin is used for agriculture, 39% is forested, 5% is built‐up area, and the remaining 5% is surface water or bare rock and glaciers [Disse and Engel, ; Middelkoop et al., ]. For the Lower Rhine at Kleve-Bimmen, a rise of the average water temperature > 1 °C since and an increase of years with maximal water temperatures above 25 °C are stated. It is highly probable that the rise in temperature is due to climate change, as, at the same time, the permitted waste heat discharges along the Rhine were regressing.

The Rhine Basin holds a population of 48,, people that require water for irrigation, livestock, electricity, manufacturing, domestic, and per Capita use. Total water withdrawals are highest for Germany, Netherlands, and France in that order with percent of . Book. Jan ; J. J. Beersma. T. Adri Buishand. View. Rainfall Generator for the Rhine Basin Description of year simulations A stochastic rainfall generator based on nearest neighbour.   Rainfall generator (RG) for the Rhine basin (Beersma ; time-series number ) input for the river basin model. The time series of river discharges made transient by linear scaling in time. Models used: RG for the Rhine basin, Integrated . With a length of km and a river basin of km 2, the Rhine is the largest river in Northwest Rhine has two main sources, both in Switzerland. The resulting small streams Vorderrhein and Hinterrhein merge near Reichenau, becoming the Alpen Rhine.
