Effects of Climate Change on River Water Quality
The potential impact of predicted climate change on water quality in UK rivers, and its implications to the UK water industry, was investigated using a newly developed, fully distributed catchment-scale hydrological and water quality model, CAS-Hydro. The model has been developed at the landscape scale, allowing an improved representation of how material is processed and transported across the landscape and into the river channel network.
Modelling of the River Derwent (Yorkshire) and a simulated catchment in southern England demonstrated a risk of climate-induced hydrological and water quality impacts on UK rivers, for the UKCIP 1998 medium-high emissions scenario in the 2080s.
