Climate change impacts on discharges of the Rhone River in Lyon by the end of the twenty-first century: model results and implications

Abstract:

We assess possible modifications in the hydrological behaviour of the Rhone River and its tributaries at Lyon (France). We identify changes during the late-twentieth century based on observations and characterise potential impacts of climatic changes on river response by the end of the century.
