Other AbstractThe upper region of the Yangtze River, as the freshwater source for the middle and lower Yangtze River, is highly vulnerable to climate change. Understanding and projecting the spatiotemporal variability of extreme flows in this region are key to creating appropriate adaptation policies and strategies. In this study, climate change signals were scaled from seven bias-corrected CMIP5 models and were used to force a variable infiltration capacity (VIC) model to quantify and assess the impact of climate change on the hydrology of the region. The respective contribution of precipitation (P) and temperature (T) to evapotranspiration (ET) and hydrological regimes (annual mean runoff, high flow, and low flow) were also quantified using the analysis of variance method (ANOVA). For the scenario period (2031–2060), the projected runoff is projected to increase in vary between 11.33% and 64.08% in winter, while increases in summer range from 8.64% to 40.97%. The changes in ET are different depending on the climate mode used; these increase during winter and decrease in summer under the influence of temperature. In addition, we found that low flows are projected to decrease while the mean annual runoff will increase in the future period. These projected changes demonstrated that temperature effects dominate in the study area for the future period under the representative concentration pathway 8.5 scenario. © 2019
