are expected to affect hydropower generation. Climate change will most likely increase the frequency of droughts and water scarcity in some areas, such as southern and southeastern parts of Europe, which already suffer water stress ( Bernstein et al. 2007 ). Particularly interesting, as important indicators of global warming, are the projected trends of climate variables such as temperature and rainfall on the Mediterranean area. In this region, according to Christensen et al. ( Christensen et al

the California Data Exchange Center ( Figure 3 ). Second, the spatial extent of the flood inundation from the model simulation was verified by comparing with observed flood inundation extent. The observed flood inundation extent was developed through remote sensing analyses of European Remote Sensing Satellite (ERS) SAR scenes (obtained on 4 January 1997), Radarsat-1 SAR imageries (obtained on 8, 15, and 17 January 1997), and the Landsat-5 Thematic Mapper imagery (acquired on 14 January 1997

/NERC studentship. Funding support is also acknowledged from the European Commission's KULTURisk project ( ). This project is undertaken under the umbrella of NERC STORM Risk Mitigation, project DEMON (NERC reference: NE/I005358/1). The survey of wrack and water marks was supported by the Natural Environment Research Council (NERC) grant mapping and modeling water elevations for the Carlisle 2005 flood event (NE/D521222/1).
