Abstract

Examination of how an atmospheric doubled carbon dioxide (2xCO2) climate in the Upper Deschutes Basin would strain regional water resources, as shown via a semi-distributed moisture budget (SDMB) model. Watershed climate simulation reveals a 25 percent increase in mean monthly runoff, indicating greater risk of winter flooding associated with accelerated snow pack melt, increased spring runoff, and a shift of the minimum runoff month to earlier in the year. A. plead for flexibility in planning of water supply programs. - (SLD)
