What is it about?
The simplified scheme to incorporate improved evapotranspiration estimates into the streamflow elasticity framework is introduced and named as “SSII-Evap” method. SSII-Evap allows for calculating runoff changes induced by climate taking into account: 1) changes in two climatic variables (precipitation and potential evapotranspiration) and 2) changes in land surface conditions responsible for varying actual evapotranspiration. The six-step procedure provides a focused guide for enhancing the original method.

Why is it important?
Quantifying the impacts of vegetation changes on streamflow helps to evaluate the human impacts.
