Abstract: Changes in water dynamics due to climate change can have significant influences. Simulations for German rivers were performed with SWIM (Soil and Water Integrated Model) to estimate the extent of these changes. The results show a probable decline of river discharge and an increasing risk for low water and droughts. Thus, riparian areas and species that live there are influenced and endangered significantly. The effects of changes can be alleviated with the help of adequate tools, methods and measures.
