Climate change linked to increase in UK flooding – study

Climate change linked to increase in UK flooding – study The extent of climate change on the severity of flooding has been previously unclear due to a lack of data. But the Vienna University of Technology claim their database is the most complete on European flooding so far, involving research institutions in 24 European countries including the University of Bath and University of Liverpool. Researchers analysed records from 3,738 river flood measurement stations across Europe over five decades. Northern England and southern Scotland have seen an increase in flooding of more than 11%, while the study observed a 23% decrease in Russia.

Bronte Law and Carlota Ciganda will lead Europe out in the opening match of the 16th Solheim Cup at Gleneagles.

European rookie Law will partner the experienced Spaniard in the first foursomes match at 8:10am, taking on Team USA's Morgan Pressel and Marina Alex, one of six debutants in Juli Inkster's side.

Inkster has also paired the Korda sisters together, the first time siblings will partner each other in Solheim Cup history, with Jessica and Nelly playing against Caroline Masson and Jodi Ewart Shadoff in the third match out.

However, Inkster admitted afterwards she had reservations about pairing the sisters together, only for them to convince the Team USA skipper otherwise.

Match two pits Lexi Thompson and Brittany Altomare against Georgia Hall and Celine Boutier, with home skipper Catriona Matthew opting against partnering Hall with English compatriot Charley Hull.

Ally McDonald, a late replacement for the injured Stacy Lewis, is the only American rookie not playing in the morning, but Inkster confirmed she will feature in the afternoon fourballs.
