With climate change, the water cycle is expected to undergo significant change. For example, a warmer climate causes more water to evaporate from both land and oceans; in turn, a warmer atmosphere can hold more water – roughly four percent more water for every 1ºF rise in temperature.

Changes like this are expected to lead to specific, and. Climate Change and Water Climate change is already impacting water and other resources in California, and will continue to do so as California’s population and demand for water increases.

As the first book to address climate issues from the water resources engineering perspective, this report will be beneficial to water resources planners and managers, flood and drought preparedness agencies, irrigation district managers, and any others that rely on water resources budgeting, planning, and systems operations.

Water te Blue Book 9 I. Water and Climate Change Climate change directly impacts on the availability of water resources due to the increased frequency of drought and heavy rainfall.

Climate change alters the frequency and intensity of extreme weather events, which will occur more often and be more violent. Yet another impact of higher temperatures is the melting of inland glaciers.

This will increase water supply to rivers and lakes in the short to medium term, but this will cease once these glaciers have melted. In the sub-tropics, climate change is likely to lead to reduced rainfall in what are already dry regions.
