The potential impacts of climate change on the hydrology and water resources of the Nile River basin are assessed using a macroscale hydrology model driven by 21 st century simulations of temperature and precipitation downscaled from runs of 11 General Circulation Models (GCMs) and two global emissions scenarios (A2 and B1) archived for the 2007 IPCC(More)

soil water dynamics in the unsaturated zone-State of the art. This paper reviews the principles underlying water dynamics in the unsaturated zone and gives an overview of simulation modelling of soil water flow in the unsaturated zone. The basic relations describing kinetics of flow and governing equations of flow in the un-saturated zone are presented in a(More)
Despite significant progress in climate impacts research, the narratives that science can presently piece together of a 2, 3, 4, or 5 degree warmer world remain fragmentary. Here we briefly review past undertakings to comprehensively characterize and quantify climate impacts based on multi-model approaches. We then report on the Inter-5 Sectoral Impact(More)
This article summarizes the changes in landscape structure because of human land management over the last several centuries, and using observed and modeled data, documents how these changes have altered biogeophysical and biogeochemical surface fluxes on the local, mesoscale, and regional scales. Remaining research issues are presented including whether(More)

The Wadden Sea is one of the largest intertidal areas in the world and has been designated as a UNESCO World Heritage Site in recognition of its unique natural features. Major changes in the morphology and ecology of the Wadden Sea over the past millennium resulted from increasing anthropogenic influences such as coastal protection, land claim from the sea(More)
One of the main manifestations of climate change will be increased rainfall variability. How to deal with this in agriculture will be a major societal challenge. In this paper we explore flexibility in land use, through deliberate seasonal adjustments in cropped area, as a specific strategy for coping with rainfall variability. Such adjustments are not(More)
Assessing and managing water use is crucial for supporting sustainable river basin management and regional development. The first consistent and comprehensive assessment of sectorial water use in the Pearl River Delta (PRD) is presented by analysing homogenized annual water use data from 2000 to 2010 in relation to socio economic statistics for the same(More)
