    Abstract

    The climate of Europe has been changing along similar lines to that of the globe as a whole, with warming of 0.9 °C being experienced over the period 1901–2005 (Alcamo et al., 2007). Though future changes in rainfall to be expected as a result of continued warming are subject to large uncertainties, mean rainfall intensity is expected to increase significantly across the continent, irrespective of local changes in annual or seasonal receipt (Giorgi et al., 2004). Of more significance for soil processes and soil hydrology is the substantially increased likelihood of extreme precipitation events.
