Project Details


In order to predict future freshwater availability and the vulnerability of ecosystems and society to floods and droughts, hydrological model tools are needed that are capable of accurately representing climate, land use and land cover at different spatial scales. The purpose of the current project is to develop model tools capable of quantifying the relative effects of site-specific land use change and climate variability at different scales.
