×K2. Hydroclimate in a changing climate

Climate change is expected to alter regional hydroclimates, with consequences for water availability and extreme events such as floods and droughts. Past and future changes in hydroclimate remain uncertain over many regions, despite much effort to understand the different aspects of hydroclimate, including precipitation and evaporation patterns. Recent advances in modelling and observational records offer opportunities to revisit hydroclimatic changes to better inform water and risk management and planning decisions. This session invites contributions exploring past and future hydroclimatic changes both in Australia and globally. We welcome a broad range of studies using observations and models, as well as approaches such as machine learning.
