This project focuses on data compilation, synthesis and open-access provision as basis for further investigation of how pressures of climate change and land-use developments combine to impact freshwater flow, availability, drought and flood variations and changes, and what may be significant and critical impacts of future change scenarios around the world.
The overarching project in which this data work is included goes beyond the state of the art in innovatively advancing water resource science that overcomes a commonly fragmented view of freshwater aspects and problems as just local, associated with specific disciplines or societal sectors. As such, the project enters new and rapidly expanding research territory, with potential for high gains based on the data compilation, synthesis and open-access publication work in focus for this project.
As a part of a large-scale research for investigating water cycle changes and its potential variables in all around the world, we intend to monitor and screen all the catchments which already have data for hydroclimatic variables. In this regard, some of the catchments are overlapping geographically and we need to investigate them before any further actions and data analysis.
