Abstract

Global warming is expected to increase the intensity of the global hydrologic cycle. Precipitation and temperature patterns, soil moisture requirements, and the physical structure of the vegetation canopy play important roles in the hydrologic system of drainage basins. In this work a methodology for the evaluation of impact on soil moisture concentration and direct surface runoff is presented.
