Bringing INnovation to onGOing water management - a better future under climate change - Model results for water and land use scenarios completed and analysed
“More than 20 hydrological models have been to applied, driven with climatic decadal predictions until 2024. The results will be used by stakeholders, such as water providers and managers, local authorities, and others in order to be prepared for and to cope with near time climate change effects. Furthermore, these model results on future water resources availability and extremes is used by Work Package 4, which will conduct case sensitive risk analysis.
The model results are described in detail in this Deliverable, they focus on multiple water related problems and scales, such as flooding by combined sewer overflows in Badalona, Spain and Bergen, Norway, changes in groundwater recharge for drinking water abstraction in the Veluwe, the Netherlands, altered reservoir management in the Wupper river basin, Germany and in Bergen, Norway, flooding problems in Cyprus, and increasing salinization in Portugal.
The model applications have also shown, that in some cases anticipated land use and water use changes can have large impacts on water resources, especially in combination with climate change effects, such as increases in floods and droughts. This deliverable also combines different bottom-up approaches on predicting short- term effects until 2024 by pointing out synergies between sites and methods.”
D3.4 – Model results for water and land use scenarios completed and analysed was developed by IWW, LNEC, NTNU, KWR, AQUALOGY, CYI, IACO, WUPPERVERBAND and all local partners within WP3 – Integrated analysis of the water cycle.
