This paper describes the main functionalities of an integrated framework to model the interactions between land use, climate, and hydrology along with stakeholders’ negotiation. Its novelty lies in the combination of individual-based and spatially distributed models within the Socio-Hydrology paradigm to capture the complexity and uncertainty inherent to these systems. It encompasses a land-use/land-cover cellular automata model, an agent-based model used for automated stakeholders’ negotiation, and the hydrological MIKE SHE/MIKE 11 model, which are linked and can be accessed through a web-based interface. It enables users to run simulations to explore a wide range of scenarios related to land development and water resource management while considering the reciprocal influence of human and natural systems. This framework was developed with the involvement of key stakeholders from the initial design stage to the final demonstration and validation.

This study proposes an integrated modeling system consisting of the physically-based MIKE SHE/MIKE 11 model, a cellular automata model, and general circulation models (GCMs) scenarios to investigate the independent and combined effects of future climate and land-use/land-cover (LULC) changes on the hydrology of a river system. The integrated modelling system is applied to the Elbow River watershed in southern Alberta, Canada in conjunction with extreme GCM scenarios and two LULC change scenarios in the 2020s and 2050s. Results reveal that LULC change substantially modifies the river flow regime in the east sub-catchment, where rapid urbanization is occurring. It is also shown that the change in LULC causes an increase in peak flows in both the 2020s and 2050s. The impacts of climate and LULC change on streamflow are positively correlated in winter and spring, which intensifies their influence and leads to a significant rise in streamflow, and, subsequently, increases the vulnerability of the watershed to spring floods. This study highlights the importance of using an integrated modeling approach to investigate both the independent and combined impacts of climate and LULC changes on the future of hydrology to improve our understanding of how watersheds will respond to climate and LULC changes.

The Elbow River watershed, located in the foothills of the Rocky Mountains, has experienced several extreme hydrological events such as droughts and floods over the last century. It is therefore critical to understand the future possible responses of the hydrological processes to changes in climate and land-use/land-cover (LULC) since they can induce considerable stress to the watershed along with economic and social costs. Very little attention has been given so far in the literature to the combined impact of climate and LULC change on hydrological processes at the watershed scale, which might result in an over- or under-estimation of the responses. This study was undertaken to investigate the responses of hydrological processes to the combined impact of climate and LULC change in the watershed in the 2020s and 2050s. The physically-based, distributed MIKE SHE/MIKE 11 model was coupled with a LULC cellular automata model to simulate hydrological processes using two extreme GCM-scenarios and two LULC change scenarios. Results reveal that LULC change is the dominant factor affecting the majority of the hydrological processes, especially streamflow, and that it plays a key role in amplifying a rise in flow discharge in the Elbow River. Evapotranspiration and infiltration are more strongly affected by both climate and LULC change in winter while streamflow is more impacted in the spring. The separated impacts of climate and LULC change on streamflow are positively correlated in winter and spring, which intensifies their influence. This is particularly the case in spring when the combined impact of climate and LULC results in a significant rise in streamflow, which may increase the vulnerability of the watershed to floods in this season. The flow duration curves (FDC) indicate that LULC change has a greater contribution to peak flows than climate change in both the 2020s and 2050s. This study highlights the importance of investigating the combined impact of climate and LULC change to avoid underestimating or overestimating water storage in the watershed.
