Assessmen of climate change impacts on the water resouces of the Autonomous Region of Madeira. Based on a set of precipitation and temperature projections the impacts on stream flow and recharge were calculated, taking into consideration the specific characteristics of these vulcanic islands. The region vulnerability to these impacts was estimated and a set of possible adaptation measures was proposed.
- Selection of climate change scenarios
- Hydrogeological model conceptualization
- Estimation of streamflow and aquifer
- Vulnerability assessment
- Guidelines for an adaptation strategy
