Impact of the Climate Change on Water and Snow Balance in the “Jizerské” Mountains in the Czech Republic


The paper deals with climatic and hydrologic conditions in the “Jizerské” Mountains and their foothills in the Czech Republic. Climatic (temperature, precipitation, snow features) and hydrological (outflow) data series and their relations among various parameters were studied. Trends in the last 50 years and their prediction with water balance modelling in the current century were processed for mountainous, foothill and lowland regions. Key words: Hydrology, climatology, climate change, water balance, snow hydrology.
