Climate Change and Its Impact on Water Resources in North China

  • Gao Ge
  • Huang Chaoying


In the context of climate, water resources and areas of farmland suffered from drought and flood data, features and changes of climate and water resources as well as correlation between them are analyzed for the past 50 years in North China. Assessment models of water resources are developed. Impacts of extreme climate events on water resources and impacts of drought and flood on agriculture are further studied. In the end, possible impacts of climate change in coming years are discussed on the basis of climate model simulation. Countermeasures and suggestions are put forward for realizing water resources sustainable utilization.
