Assessment of Climate Change Effects on Water Yield from the North Saskatchewan River Basin

The effects of climate change on water yield on the North Saskatchewan River Basin (NSRB) will affect water use and water management in the basin. There is a need to assess the potential effects so that watershed planners can implement mitigation measures to minimize negative effects. The scope of this study includes a literature review on climate change as it pertains to the prairie regions and an assessment of trends in observed temperature, precipitation and stream flow data in the NSRB. This report summarizes the assessment of the potential effects of climate change on the water yield from the NSRB.
