A New Infiltration Model For Short-Duration Rainfall

Global warming enables atmosphere to hold more water and accelerates the global water cycle. The warmer air provides more moisture to rainfall events and leads to extreme short-duration rainfall increasing in magnitude and frequency worldwide. For these increasing short-duration rainfall events, in addition to the water infiltrates into the soil and urban drainage system, the remaining large amount of water flowing on the ground triggers the flooding and waterlogging disasters in urban areas and various hydrologic and geologic hazards in...
