Abstract

Abstract Assessments of climate change risks, and system vulnerabilities, may benefit from a focus on a watershed. A riverine hydrological system is an integrator of natural and human systems, and so constitutes an appropriate setting for determining the regional effects of climate change scenarios. The Mackenzie Basin Impact Study (MBIS) is presented as a case study that illustrates the challenges and opportunities presented by integrated regional assessment of climate change scenarios in a large watershed in northwestern Canada.
