Heisse Sommer – feuchte Winter
Der Klimawandel hat Auswirkungen auf die Wasservorkommen in der Schweiz. Am deutlichsten ist die Verschiebung der Niederschläge von Schnee zu Regen, wodurch es zu einer Verlagerung in der zeitlichen Verteilung des Abflusses kommt. Darüber hinaus wird die Schweiz indirekt auch von Veränderungen der weltweiten Wasserverfügbarkeit betroffen sein.
