Cover Story (view full-size image): The goal of our study is to evaluate the effects of climate change upon the Lake Como inflows, to provide a tool to help policy makers to evaluate adaptation strategies, under the framework of the Interreg Project GE.RI.KO. MERA, focusing upon the Mera river. The Poli-Hydro model is used to simulate the cryospheric processes of this catchment. Model accuracy is demonstrated against historical hydrological observations (2002-2018). We then used four scenarios, provided by three GCMs under the IPCC AR6, to project potential climate change and hydrological impact until 2100. The climate projections highlight an increase in temperature at the end of the century, possibly leading to a decrease of the contribution of snow and ice melt. Overall, annual Lake inflows would increase during autumn and winter and decrease in summer. View this paper.
