This project will analyse terrestrial/atmospheric and surface water fluxes and associated budget contributions from model simulations, reanalyses and remote sensing observations for all larger river basins in Europe. Modelling results will be combined with catchment-integrating observations like GRACE/-FO derived water storage variability and river discharge. We will compare the budgets from the CRC’s modelling system to global reanalyses and CMIP6 climate simulations. The project will quantify to what extent regional changes of land and water use contribute to observed budget changes. It will also quantify the terrestrial-atmospheric contribution of the modelling region to sea level budgets.
