Climate change impact on hydrology

WP5: Climate change impact on hydrology

Coordinator: Rodica Mic

The objective of this WP is to develop hydrological models on various spatial and temporal scales in order to estimate the climate change impact on hydrology, focusing on extreme events. This WP is coordinated by the INHGA and is divided into 4 tasks:

Task 5.1: Assessment and identification of floods and droughts spatial and temporal pattern in the selected basins. The conditional physical-geographical factors of extreme hydrological events will be quantifying as indexes based on multi-variate analysis; will be quantifying the impact of climate change on the degree of silting-up of Tungujei reservoir and determining morphodynamic of the river bed downstream of the dam; will identify areas of active exchange between surface water and groundwater.

Task 5.2: Development of hydrological models on various spatial and temporal scales in the selected basins. Two types of hydrological models (conceptual and distributed) on various spatial scales ranging from small to large river basins from Romania will be applied.

Task 5.3: Estimating the impact of climate change on extreme flow in the selected basin based on hydrological models. The climate change impact in hydrological processes will be, for the first time in Romania, achieved for some representative basins and for selected pilot basins placed in different physico-geographical conditions using considered hydrological models - this detailed spatio-temporal assessment of the climate change impact on the hydrological regime is an important novelty in Romania; hydrological - hydrogeological model will be developed in order to determine the influence of climatic factors on groundwater.

Task 5.4: Estimating the impact of climate change on extreme flow regime by advanced statistical methods. Quantifying climate change on extreme flow regime will be determined by establishing areas of homogeneous micro-areas by association of flood with the intensity and duration of rains in the analyzed area.
