Change in Water Stress due to Population and Climate Change

Change in Water Stress due to Population and Climate Change

Projection of effects of changes in population and climate on changes in water stress between 1990 and 2025. This projection used the Hadley 2 Climate Model with sulfates included to project precipitation and air temperature out to 2025; U.S. census demographic projections to 2025; and 1992 Multi-Resolution Land Characteristics (MRLC) vegetation data.
