By Katharina Fricke (auth.)

Located in a slim grassland hall among the semi-desert and a mountain diversity in Northwest China, the study quarter Urumqi zone is regardless of its semi-arid weather in a comparatively beneficial hydrological scenario. The within reach mountains supply water for settlements and agriculture, making human improvement attainable within the first position. end result of the improvement of agriculture, inhabitants and financial system over the past sixty years and the expanding water intake, a requirement- and population-driven water shortage exists this present day and is predicted to worsen. even as, the consequences of weather switch and land use alterations at the hydrological approach and the water availability are doubtful. This examine evaluates the hot and destiny scenario via combining a hydrological water stability version for the simulation of the water offer in keeping with situations of weather and land use swap with a socio-economic version for projecting the longer term water call for together with anticipated development of inhabitants and economy.
