A second, parallel, study on climate change (Galbraith et
al., 2005a; 2005b) identified the potential impacts and
associated actions in the light of UKCIP02 (http://www.ukcip.org.uk/). That
study did not consider landslides, but contained data which helped
to inform views on the potential impacts of climate change reported
in Section 10.2.
Notwithstanding this, emerging UKCIP08 data is expected to
allow much more sophisticated modelling, including weather
generators to produce rainfall data.
It should be noted that these techniques as developed and used
do not necessarily lend themselves to use on a routine, real-time
basis. In addition, issues surrounding the shadow effects in
mountainous regions have only been partially resolved.
