Prediction of water resources as snow storage under climate change in the Tedori River basin of Japan

Abstract

We investigate the effect of climate change on water resources as snow storage (WRSS) using a regional climate model with a 20-km mesh (MRI-RCM20), in the Tedori River basin of Japan. We make four main predictions. First, annual average temperature in Kanazawa is predicted to increase by 2.7 °C by 2081–2100, compared to the period 1981–2000. The smallest… (More)
