Résumé
The aim of this dissertation thesis is to estimate the impact of climate change on the active volume of a reservoir at the region of Mouzaki in Thessaly which will be used for energy production. The first step of methodology begins by collecting mean monthly data from temperature and precipitation station which are scattered in the water catchment area (basin) of Mouzaki. The temperature data will be used in order to calculate the mean monthly temperature of the basin by implementing the temperature lapse rate method. The precipitation data will be used for the mean areal precipitation calculation by implementing the Thiessen Polygon Method and the precipitation lapse rate. Aftewards, the Potential Evapotranspiration is to be calculated by utilizing the Thornthwaite Method. The next step is to input the calculated values in the UTHBAL hydrological model which will estimate the mean monthly surface runoff. Finally, the active volume of the reservoir will be estimated for the past period of 1960-2000.The whole procedure is repeated for two future periods : the 1st future period 2010-2050 and the 2nd future period 2051-2091.For the future period the initial climatic data (temperature and precipitation) are a acquired via KNMI-RACMO2 climatic model based on emission scenario A1B.The results of each period will be compared and discussed.
