Review article: Hydrological modeling in glacierized catchments of central Asia – status and challenges

Other literature type, Article English OPEN
Chen, Yaning; Li, Weihong; Fang, Gonghuan; Li, Zhi;

Meltwater from glacierized catchments is one of the most important water supplies in central Asia. Therefore, the effects of climate change on glaciers and snow cover will have increasingly significant consequences for runoff. Hydrological modeling has become an indispe... View more
