CHMS and CEDEX make progress in the study of the impact of climate change on water resources and the drought regime

Technicians from the Centre for Hydrographic Studies of CEDEX, an autonomous body attached to the Ministry of Development and for the Ecological Transition and the Demographic Challenge and those of the Miño-Sil Hydrographic Confederation, held a meeting by videoconference last Friday, 10 July, to analyse the progress of the work included in the assignment on the impact of climate change on water resources within the framework of the RISC_ML Project.

During the meeting, the aspects already addressed in previous meetings were reviewed, such as the simulation of the hydrological cycle of the interpolated series without and with bias correction, by means of annual graphs, monthly and seasonal averages and their spatial distribution.

The results of the contributions were also shown, comparing them with studies previously carried out by both CEDEX and the CHMS, and the impact of climate change on the drought regime was analysed, through a detailed presentation with the provisional results obtained.

The works that are the object of the assignment are close to completion, so it is expected that a first version of the complete study will be obtained after the summer.

This meeting is part of the work of Activity 1 of the RISC-ML project, relating to the inventory of water resources and the impact of climate change on them.
