Sarah Null, Assistant Professor, Department of Watershed Sciences, Utah State University. [email protected] Climate change, population growth, aging infrastructure, and changing societal values alter how water must be managed in the 21st Century. This talk summarizes recent research modeling hydroclimate change for urban, agricultural, and environmental water users and highlights potential adaptations. As snowmelt-dominated runoff shifts to rainfall-dominated runoff in mountain regions, streamflows peak in winter instead of spring. This affects irrigators and some municipal water users with season-dependent water rights, including the City and County of San Francisco, and water users in the Rio-Grande and South Platte River Compacts. Instream flows for environmental protection will likely be disproportionally reduced with climate change. Dam removal is also evaluated as a potential river restoration approach. Results quantify fish habitat gains from removing dams against water supply and hydropower production losses, highlighting the declining value of reservoir storage when systems are limited by precipitation. Improving water conveyance can sometimes substitute for water storage in storage-rich watersheds. Results are presented for California’s Tuolumne watershed, with some preliminary results for Utah. These findings suggest that hydroclimatic uncertainty can be partially accounted for with simple modifications to existing operating rules for reservoirs, though other approaches are also likely needed. Sarah is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Watershed Sciences at Utah State University. She received her BA in economics from UCLA, and both her masters and PhD in geography at UC Davis. She worked as a postdoctoral scholar at UC Davis’ Center for Watershed Sciences for 3 years prior to coming to Utah State University. Sarah’s research interests include water resources systems analysis for people and ecosystems, climate change impacts and adaptations for water resources, stream temperature modeling and monitoring, and improving information-sharing between policy-makers, water managers, and researchers. Field studies, mathematical models, and systems analysis are methods she uses to improve understanding of systems and explore promising solutions to problems.

(www.abndigital.com) Water is becoming a scarcer resource across the globe and, more particularly in Africa. The impacts of climate change are exacerbating an already dire situation. Many predict that access to water, will be the biggest source of conflict between communities, and between nations, unless drastic action is taken to address the issue of water. Bill Egbe, the President of Coca Cola SA, discusses the water issues we face with Daniel Kinnear Senior Executive Associate at Africa Strategy Group and ABN's Eleni Giokos.

It's hard to believe the disturbing facts that our earth is suffering from extreme weather & so many terrible environmental changes. Subscribe to American Eye http://goo.gl/GBphkv 5. Food Prices Due to droughts and other inconveniences while trying to grow food due to climate change, this could have a steep increase on food prices and farmers ability to grow crops! Land needs to be fertile in order to grow anything and that can’t really happen without enough water. With California being in a drought of epic proportions and also a state with lots a produce, the western US could see a huge increase on the cost of food by the year 2050 some are predicting. With extreme heat waves, it could cause refrigeration prices to skyrocket. While we haven’t seen the price of produce to rise yet, the rises are known to lag due to the time it takes to grow the crops. 4. Deforestation Not only can climate change cause destruction to our forests by wildfire, they can also be affected by invasive species. Some species of beetles like the Bark Beetle is known to thrive in warm temperatures. The increase of this species can absolutely devastate forests especially here in North America. With longer droughts and shorter winters the bark beetles have working overtime and have already killed billions of trees in possibly the largest forest infestation in recorded history. They enjoy feasting on mountain pines and spruce in places like the Yukon, Rocky Mountains and even all the way down in Mexico. The feed primarily on the inner bark, cutting off its circulatory system and leave the trees with little to no nutrients to continue living. 3. Ice Caps Melting Researchers at Nasa and UC Irvine have began to notice a western glaciers in Antarctica is melting at an alarming rate. This could eventually lead to our oceans rising at least 4 feet. Coastal cities could see a rise in floods make some cities uninhabitable. This isn’t the only place that’s melting. Greenland is home to many glaciers and ice caps. In this photo, from the film Chasing Ice you can see melted glacial water that melted at a frightening rate. In some places in Greenland, the stream from the melted water moves at a speed of 9.4 miles per hour! At the current rate it’s ice sheets are melting, it creates enough water each year to cover Germany a meter deep! The arctic is experiencing a crisis and it will affect us in ways we can only imagine. 2. Higher Demand for Energy A global trend has began and since 1970 the global demand for heating has decreased while the demand for cooling has skyrocketed. With the climate getting warmer and more people, the demand for more energy to produce enough cooling could get out of control. It will be never ending cycle of people wanting to stay cool due to the increase of carbon emissions but need power plants who put out carbon emissions to run the power! We can only hope solar and other clean fuel sources will be able to keep up with the demand. Many are projecting rainfall to plummet in some places. Hydroelectric dams, like the hoover dam, provide energy to many places. With the decrease in water and rain, how are they supposed to be able to provide us with electricity. Other places are expecting there to be even more floods like along the coast line. These floods and natural storms could cripple power generators and disrupt transmission routes making electricity in extremely high demand. 1. Animal Extinction The widespread damage caused by climate change is not only affecting humans but endangering numerous species of animals who struggle to adapt to the new environments we’ve created. This also causes them to change their behaviors like we’ve seen with migrations and coral Animals that we cherish now like Koala Bears and Polar Bears could be next on the list. The lack polar ice during the summer has lead to Polar bears to cannibalize their own cubs in order to stay alive. But it’s already caused extinction. The Orange spotted filefish who lived in coral reefs are extinct in Japan due to the coral bleaching and sensitivity to warm waters. The Golden Toad is one few known species to go extinct with medium confidence that it was due to climate change. It lived in forests in central America that disappeared due to drought and other climate changes.

Human activities are recognized as the major causes for global warming and other climate change factors. The emissions of Green House gases have unexpectedly increasing making the globe to show unpredictably different climate. This resource artifact is produced for the Sri Lankan farmers on climate change impacts on water resources and agriculture. As Sri Lanka is typical agriculture based country climate change has a greater impact on agricultural activities which are very much unknown for rural farmers. I believe this will give them a brief knowledge on climate change, causes, impacts and also the threats to their livelihood at present.

At COP 21 in Paris, Parties to the UNFCCC reached a landmark agreement to combat climate change. The agreement which underscores the importance of global collaboration allows for the charting of a new course in efforts to combat climate change. Among the goals …to keep global temperature rise below 2 degrees Celsius above pre-industrial levels; to provide funding to assist vulnerable countries mitigate and adapt to climate change as well as an agreed framework for the Warsaw International Mechanism on Loss and Damage. At COP 22 in Marrakech the goal is to iron out and develop a rule book for the implementation of the Paris agreement. Attention is also being placed on water. The first Water Day at the COP was heralded a few days ago. It highlighted the relationship between climate change and water security. An issue tightly woven with food security.

The Department of the Interior and Bureau of Reclamation have released the 2016 SECURE Water Report and interactive basin-by-basin visualization tool following the World Water Day White House Summit. The SECURE Water Report identifies climate change as a growing risk to Western water management and cites warmer temperatures, changes to precipitation, snowpack and the timing and quality of streamflow runoff across major river basins as threats to water sustainability. Water supply, quality and operations; hydropower; groundwater resources; flood control; recreation; and fish, wildlife and other ecological resources in the Western states remain at risk. The report, which responds to requirements under the SECURE Water Act of 2009, shows several increased risks to western United States water resources during the 21st century. This is the second report produced for Congress. The first report was produced in 2011. The report and visualization tool are available at www.usbr.gov/climate/secure/

This talk begins with an overview of the properties of hydrological and water resource models then charts the history of their use inclimate risk assessment at the catchment-scale. Concepts such as equifinality in (hydrological) modelling and associated implications for climate impact assessment will then be explored. Uncertainties linked to hydrological model structures and parameters are placed in the wider context of other major uncertainties arising from non - climatic pressures, climate model and downscaling biases. Explanations for apparent mismatches between observed and expected hydrological change at regional scales will be offered. Two case studies will then demonstrate how models can be used as ‘virtual laboratories’ for exploring multiple working hypotheses about hydrological change (in the Boyne, Republic of Ireland), and for assessing outcomes of adaptation options (in the Upper Colorado, USA). The talk will conclude with a summary of outstanding research challenges and explain how these relate to the information needs of water planners.
