Natural and managed watersheds show similar responses to recent climate change
Description: "Climate change is expected to alter streamflow volume and variability in watersheds throughout the world, which will have impacts on agricultural, aquatic, and urban environments. Human modifications such as the building of reservoirs and the extraction

Assessment of the Impacts of Climate Change on Reservoir Water Quality
Description: "This project produced a comprehensive assessment of the impacts of climate change on reservoir water quality under a range of climatic scenarios. The aim of the project was to determine how risks will propagate and change with a changing climate. Risks t

Greenhouse Gas Emissions from Reservoir Water Surfaces: A New Global Synthesis
Description: "Collectively, reservoirs created by dams are thought to be an important source of greenhouse gases (GHGs) to the atmosphere. So far, efforts to quantify, model, and manage these emissions have been limited by data availability and inconsistencies in meth

Large CO2 effluxes at night and during synoptic weather events significantly contribute to CO2 emissions from a reservoir
Description: "CO2 emissions from inland waters are commonly determined by indirect methods that are based on the product of a gas transfer coefficient and the concentration gradient at the air water interface (e.g., wind-based gas transfer models). The measurements of

Dynamic Reservoir Operations: Managing for Climate Variability and Change
Description: "Increasing demand for water and potential shifts in availability of water due to climate change present challenges to water system operators, who are responsible for maintaining water supply reliability, both in terms of quantity and quality. One promisi

A Method to Consider Whether Dams Mitigate Climate Change Effects on Stream Temperatures
Description: "This article provides a method for examining mesoscale water quality objectives downstream of dams with anticipated climate change using a multi-model approach. Cold-water habitat for species such as trout and salmon has been reduced by water regulation,
