Toelichting (Engels) Recently, the Royal Netherlands Meteorological Institute (KNMI) presented four new climate scenarios for the Netherlands. These new scenarios will serve as the national standard in water management adaptation policies in the Netherlands for the coming years. The main part of the Rhine basin lies upstream of Lobith and outside of the Netherlands and thus the discharge regime of the Rhine is determined by its upstream hydrological behaviour. In the current paper the effects of climate change on the discharge of the river Rhine at Lobith are assessed, projecting the new KNMI climate change scenarios on the entire river basin. To do this, the semi-distributed conceptual hydrological HBV model for the Rhine basin was used. Transforming 35 years of historical climate forcing data generated the meteorological input series, which resulted in projected changes in mean discharges of the Rhine. In addition, with the aim to analyse effects on extreme events with return periods smaller than 1/200 years, output of a stochastic weather generator was used to create meteorological input series of 1,000 years for different climate scenarios, resulting in several sets of 1,000 years of daily discharge data.
