Modeling the Impact of Climate Change on Global Hydrology and Water Availability
The objective of this technical report is to provide the background to the methodology used to model the impact of climate change on runoff for the Global Track of the EACC project. This report presents findings from computer modeling of the impacts of potential climate change on hydrology and water availability (that is, changes in runoff, basin yield, and flooding).
After an introductory chapter, Chapter 2 provides the framework of analysis. Chapter 3 provides the hydrological drivers and data. Chapter 4 describes selected climate scenarios. Chapter 5 provides the runoff. Chapter 6 describes the basin yield. Chapter 7 summarizes the work and discusses future work. The Appendixes describe the Climate and Runoff (CLIRUN) Model.
