Abstract

Weather and climate extremes affect every facet of society, economies, environments and cultures. Future projections from climate models and recent studies shows impact of climate change on rainfall indices estimation.The purpose of this study is thus to document changes in indices that are calculated in a consistent manner as simulated in the CMIP3 and CMIP5 model ensembles for analyzing impacts of climate change on cachment rainfall indices the some of subbasin Hamedan Province West of Iran. This study assesses the simulations of rainfall indices based on the Coupled Model Intercomparison Project CMIP5 and CMIP3. The analysis of the rainfall indices are : simple rainfall intensity, very heavy rainfall days , maximum one-day rainfall and rainfall frequency has been carried out in this study to evaluating the impact of climate change on rainfall indices events. Relative change in three rainfall indices is investigated by GCMs under various greenhouse gas emission scenarious A1B and B1 and RCP8.5, RCP8.5 scenarios for the future periods 2020–2045 and 2045-2065. Rainfall indices of sum wet days , nday >1mm and maximum one-day rainfall are projected to decrease under the senariuos B1,A1B and sum wet days , simple daily intensity and heavy Rainfall days>10 projected to decrease under the RCP2.6 .
