Abstract

The clay soil-vegetation-climate model described in the Geotechnique paper by Smethurst Clarke and Powrie (2006) was used to simulate soil moisture deficits in clays soils at four sites in the UK. Historical climate data were used to calculate extreme soil moisture deficits and runoff from clay slopes. The relative frequency of extreme wet and dry years was calculated. Future climate change impacts were modelled using the UKCIP BETWIXT data sets and the relative frequency of extreme events was calculated for the 21st century and compared with the historical data
