The AA. conducted a statistical analysis of the relation between observed climate and municipal water use in Seoul for the years 2002 to 2007, as a preliminary step in establishing the extent to which water use is affected by weather and climate and what weather and climate variables are most deterministic. Significant improvement of the modeling of seasonal water use was achieved by developing autoregressive integrated moving average (ARIMA) models, which account for auto correlation in the time series and explain up to 66% of the variance in water use. The results indicate that weather plays a significant role in determining water consumption in Seoul, and that has important implications for manegement of urban water resources under potential future climate change
