Toelichting (Engels) In the context of Phase 2 of the Netherlands Drought Study, Kiwa Water Research conducted an exploratory literature study on the effects of CO2 increases in evapotranspiration, biomass production and competition between plant species (Doomen & Witte, 2004). One of the most important results of the study is that an increase in CO2 levels can lead to a significant reduction in potential evapotranspiration. If this result is correct, it has important consequences for hydrology in The Netherlands in a period of climate change: instead of becoming drier, as is generally assumed, The Netherlands would become wetter. However, this exploratory literature study was too brief to fully substantiate a relation between an increase in CO2 levels and a decrease in evapotranspiration. For this reason, the Institute of Integrated Water Management and Waste water Treatment, Riza, has asked Kiwa Water Research to do further research into the effects of CO2 increases on decreasing evapotranspiration.

To support researchers to publish their research Open Access, deals have been negotiated with various publishers. Depending on the deal, a discount is provided for the author on the Article Processing Charges that need to be paid by the author to publish an article Open Access. A discount of 100% means that (after approval) the author does not have to pay Article Processing Charges.

For the approval of an Open Access deal for an article, the corresponding author of this article must be affiliated with Wageningen University & Research.
