×K9. System-centric approaches for hydro-climate impact assessments

Modelling complex human-natural systems is necessary for planning and decision-making for multiple applications, including the management of natural resources, water supply, agriculture, and energy. These system models can include engineered, hydrologic, ecologic, or socio-economic components that interact with the climate on varying spatial and temporal scales; these interactions can be represented using process-based or data-based approaches. Such systems are sensitive to changes in multiple hydro-climate attributes (e.g., precipitation frequency and duration, extreme temperature), and model representations of system-climate interactions evolve as we understand them better.

This session welcomes contributions on system-centric approaches to understand and manage their responses to hydro-climatic changes. Submissions on the following topics are particularly welcome:

Key topics: Hydroclimate impact assessment, Bottom-up approaches
