Modeling the impact of climate change on global hydrology and water availability (Inglês)

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 Economic of Adaptation to Climate Change (EACC) project. This report will present 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). Chapter two provides the framework of analysis. Chapter three provides the hydrological drivers and data. Chapter four describes selected climate scenarios. Chapter five provides the runoff. Chapter six describes the basin yield. Chapter seven summarizes the work and discusses future work. The appendixes describe the Climate and Runoff (CLIRUN) model.
