Abstract
Variations of the frequency and intensity of extreme daily precipitation in summer in the southeast of the Far East Federal District of the Russian Federation, - in region with high risks of extreme seasonal floods, were studied for the period 1970- 2015 using data of 54 meteorological stations. Future changes for the period 2041-2060 were estimated using data of the global climate models HadGEM and MPI-ESM. It is shown that the observed and projected changes in frequency extreme daily precipitation events in summer are diverse and statistically insignificant when averaged for the whole study area. However, a growth of extreme daily precipitation intensity in the north of the study area and in the south of Sakhalin island is found in obserations for the recent period 2000-2015 being relative to 1970-1999. Such a tendency is projected by the middle of the 21st century according to the HadGEM and MPI-ESM models.
