Catchment-scale hydrological response to climate-land-use combined scenarios : a case study for the Kishwaukee River basin, Illinois

Authors(s) and Affiliation(s)



This paper examines how the Kishwaukee River basin located between Chicago and Rockford, would respond to various climate-land use combined scenarios. The Hydrological Simulation Program-Fortran was calibrated and repeatedly run with 8 climate-land-use combined scenarios generated from a general circulation model and a dynamic urban growth model. The climate scenarios were based on 2 IPCC SRES emission scenarios and the land-use scenarios were based on 4 economic growth scenarios. The results of the study indicate that total runoff is predicted to decrease noticeably to moderate climate change but shows little sensitivity to land-use change
