Abstract: It is understood that water resources are vulnerable and have the potential to be strongly impacted by climate change. Long-term water resources planning, management and risk analysis could not be done without better addressing the impact of climate change on water resources at different spatial scales. The ability of GIS to overlay geo-referenced data greatly facilitates assessment at different spatial scales. The objective of this project is to explore the development of water resources and climate change information within a GIS domain and develop the database by performing geospatial processing of different data, applicable to water resources, utilizing different climate change scenarios, mainly focusing on Tennessee-Cumberland basin scale.
