The present study summarised the dataset available used for climate and hydrological studies in China. The main aim is to identify the possible sources of climate and hydrological datasets to be used to validate the hydrological outputs of a GCM/RCM climate model and/or of a coupled climate/hydrological model. Furthermore a brief analysis of the state of art pubblications concerning the impact of climate changes on the hydrological hazards, such as floods and droughts, over some areas of China is also reported.
This activity has been conducted in the framework of WP B.1.6 of the GEMINA project.
