Future temperature, precipitation and evapotranspiration characteristics were estimated for the next 50 years using the CLM regional climate model developed by the Max Planck Institute for Meteorology, Germany. The results obtained from the climate simulation model were introduced into the hydrological model in order to simulate the future time series of yearly average flows upstream from the two large dams of Thissavros and Platanivrissi, located on the Greek territory. The results show a net decrease of river annual flows, which means difficulties in ensuring hydro-electrical production and irrigation needs in the Nestos river delta region.
