Climate change impacts

WaSiM was specifically developed to analyse the impact of climate change on water ressources. It can be used to quantify changes in all major water balance components and to estimate change trends.

WaSiM provides a flexible interface to take climate change scenarios into account. Scenarios can be provided as location data (e.g. for climate stations) as well as as gridded data sets.
