AbstractIn this paper, we visually analyze spatio-temporal patterns of different hydrologic parameters relevant for flooding. On the basis of data from climate simulations with a high resolution regional atmosphere model, several extreme events are selected for different river catchments in Germany. By visually comparing the spatial distribution of the main contributions to the run-off along with their temporal evolution for a time period in the 20th and the 21th century, impacts of climate change on the hydrological cycle can be identified.
