Technical Abstract: Projected impacts of climate change have included, in addition to warmer temperatures, regionally variable effects on precipitation amounts, intensities, and seasonal distribution. Projections downscaled to Hungary and surrounding region were identified and their effects on streamflow, other water resources, and agriculture discussed. Finally, ongoing and potential research to adapt to climate change is listed.
