Evaluation of climate change impact on soil and snow processes in small watersheds of European part of Russia using various scenarios of climate


The paper presents the results of assessing possible changes in soil water, heat dynamics and snow cover processes in different Russian landscapes based on a deterministic-stochastic model using IPCC climate change scenarios. The simulations and climate change impacts analysis were conducted for three experimental watersheds located in the European part of Russia (so called water-balance stations): Valday research station, Nizhnedevickaya and Podmoskovnaya stations.

Key words: Deterministic-stochastic modelling, state variables, IPCC climate change scenarios, water-balance station.
