Abstract/Summary

This report provides guidance on how to use the wetland sensitivity to climate change tools. More specifically, it guides the user in the application of tools developed to assess how climate change impacts around 2050 (2041-2070) might impact on wetland ecohydrology in England and Wales. The term ecohydrology is used because we have focused on the ecological and archaeological impacts of climate change through alteration of the freshwater hydrological cycle. For example, the tools do not cover any direct impacts of temperature changes on vegetation growth. The tools also exclude coastal wetlands that might be impacted through sea-level rise as a result of climate change; though such effects should be taken into account where relevant.
