Description

The main objective of this research project is to analyze the low water flows available in the small watersheds of southern Quebec and to develop a method for estimating these flows in the current climate context and in the future climate.

Objective(s)

• Carry out a literature review to identify the low/ecological flows related to the free movement of fish and the methods for using these flows;
• Produce a characterization of low water/ecological flows for small watersheds in Quebec;
• Develop a method for estimating low/ecological flows for small ungauged watersheds;
• Adapt the method factors according to climate change scenarios.
