Abstract

The ACRU hydrologic simulation model was set up for the Langrivier catchment, Western Cape. Hydrologic responses to a range of doubled CO[2] global warming climate scenarios were simulated. Thereafter, the hydrologic effects of possible plant physiological responses to global warming, and hence changes in water-use characteristics, were modelled. Results indicate that hydrologic processes in the study area are most sensitive to variations in precipitation. An altered precipitation regime could affect rates of soil erosion, the incidence of slope failure and sediment yield from the catchment
