Climate Change Impact and Adaptation
SPHY is used in impact studies to quantify the impact of future climate change on water resources and to assess the effects of climate change adaptation measures.
For climate change impact studies, SPHY is typically set up, calibrated and validated for a climatic reference period before it is forced with an ensemble of downscaled climate change scenarios.
SPHY allows detailed quantification of the effects of climate change for water resources on different spatial and temporal scales, and for particular sectors of interest. Subsequently, the effects of different climate change adaptation measures can be assessed in high detail.
