Assessment of the Impacts of Long-term Climate Change Variations on Catchment Hydrology
MetadataShow full item record
This study assesses the impacts of long-term climate change on catchment hydrology and the potential consequences on the availability of future water resources. Five local Australian catchments, mainly located in New-South-Wales (NSW) and Western-Australia (WA), are used as study areas. Two distinctively different hydrological models, conceptual and distributed, are used to simulate the future runoff. Results indicate reduction tendencies in future rainfall and runoff and an increase in temperature and potential evaporation across the studied catchments.
