Environmental Implications of Japan's Geology 04, Climatic implications, rain, Ginza, Tokyo.

Abstract

Climatic implications, rain, Ginza, Tokyo. -- Many Japanese rivers are short and have steep gradients flowing out of mountainous terrain. This assures that runoff from storms will be rapid, and where these rivers empty onto plains flash flooding may occur. Further adding to the flood hazard is a climate that periodically causes heavy rain over short periods of time. Rainfall of eight inches or more is not uncommon during the typhoon season, especially in southwestern Japan.
