Water resources of Cyprus under changing climatic conditions: Modelling approach, validation and limitations

Cleridou, N; Benas, N; Matsoukas, C; Croke, Barry; Vardavas, I

Description

We examine trends in the water resources of Cyprus by focussing on water flux changes in the important Kouris catchment. Our modelling approach is general and is a synthesis of an adapted conceptual daily rainfall-runoff model, radiation transfer models that use high resolution MODIS satellite climatological data and GCM scenarios for future climatic change. We used climatic data as input to our models, downscaled to the catchment resolution from two climate scenarios: the mild RCP2.6 and the...[Show more]
