H027:
Challenges understanding the links between hydrological variability and large-scale climate variations in a changing climate and environment





Session ID#: 24094

Session Description:
Hydrological systems and water resources are very sensitive to changes in climate and environmental conditions. Recent and future increased temperatures are expected to increase potential evapotranspiration and possible complex changes in rainfall variability, which can impact on soil moisture, streamflow, groundwater recharge, floods and droughts. Such hydrological impacts can be assessed by forcing hydrological models with simulations from downscaled global climate models. However, hydrological systems are also influenced by "natural" modes of climate variability (ENSO, NAO, AMO, among others), whose continental impacts are not well reproduced in global climate models. This reduces significantly our capacity to project future changes in hydrological systems and water resources, and to develop adaptation scenarios for population.

We welcome abstracts capturing recent insights for understanding past or future impacts of large-scale climate variability on hydrological systems and water resources, e.g. through developing new projection and reconstruction scenarios. Results from model intercomparison studies are especially encouraged.
