Evaluation service for the impacts of climate change on hydrological variables, floods and lake regulation

Would changes in lake regulation rules and practices help you adapt to climate change impacts? Do you need to estimate changes in floods for planning purposes, for adaptation in dam safety or storm water management?

SYKE’s WSFS hydrological model can be used together with climate scenarios to assess the impacts of climate change on water discharges, water levels, floods and droughts as well on storm water discharges.

Estimating changes in floods is needed for adaptation in dam safety and planning. The WSFS-VEMALA model can be used to estimate how climate change may affect nutrient loading. Changing lake regulation rules and practices is an important way of adapting to climate change impacts. The WSFS model is used to evaluate how different regulation rules will function in varying future conditions using several climate scenarios.
