Uncertainty in the relationship between climate forcing and hydrological response in UK catchments

N. W. Arnell

  • Assesses the relationship between amount of climate forcing – as indexed by global mean temperature change – and hydrological response in a sample of UK catchments
  • Finds that the effects of climate change are apparent above the effects of natural multi-decadal variability with an increase in global mean temperature above 1 °C, but there are differences between catchments
