-of-river plants, as is the case of the present study, is more vulnerable than impoundment hydropower plants to alteration of rainfall and temperature regimes due to climate change, there is a further interest in modeling approaches for forecasting flow regimes of the Alcantara River under different climatic conditions. To this end, the emphasis of this study is placed on determining and comparing flow duration curves (FDCs), as well as the resulting utilization curves, for current and future scenarios. One of

(GCMs), which are the most advanced tools currently available in this field. GCMs are widely applied for understanding the climate, weather forecasting, and projecting climate change. In the past few years, various studies have investigated the hydrological impact of climate change (e.g., Boorman and Sefton 1997 ; Bergström et al. 2001 ; Gao et al. 2002 ; Christensen et al. 2004 ; Chen et al. 2007 ). Charlton et al. ( Charlton et al. 2006 ) examined the impact of climate change on flood hazard

of between 0.05 and 0.15 m ( Geomatics Group 2011 ). However, the postprocessing required to create the DEM can be problematic in heavily vegetated areas. As a result the RMSE of the DEM is estimated to be 0.18 m ( Mason et al. 2007b ). Neal et al. ( Neal et al. 2013 ) resampled (using the nearest-neighbor technique) the DEM to 5- and 10-m resolutions and found only minor improvements in model performance (<0.02 m RMSE) when running at the higher resolution. This is consistent with a point made
