Gridded indicators of change in annual streamflow for 2015 – 2100 for RCP2.6 and RCP8.5 over greater Europe from an ensemble of climate and hydrological models.

Climate drivers from 5 Global Climate Models were downscaled to a 5km grid over a greater European domain and used as input to 4 hydrological models to model streamflow from 2011-2100. Indicators of change in streamflow were calculated at 5 year intervals over this period (at points from 2030 to 2085), representing the change in mean annual streamflow for the 30-year period centred at these points compared to a baseline period of 1961-1990 (i.e. 2015-2045, 2020-2050, etc.). The indicator for a grid cell represents the change in the total streamflow from all upstream grid cells.
