Short summary
This paper describes the use of hypothetical climate scenarios and Global Climate Models application of hydrologic modeling within the Gurara Reservoir Catchment to assess the magnitude of potential impacts of climate change on Main Gurara discharge. The models are calibrated to simulate historical observed runoff and then driven with the temperature and precipitation changes.
