A semidistributed watershed model is applied over the Mahantango Creek catchment in Pennsylvania to estimate future changes in direct runoff under 22 different climate scenarios. It is shown how different subcatchments of the watershed may respond to possible changes in the precipitation and temperature regimes. Subcatchments with the most unfavorable future runoff responses can be identified where possible changes in land use management practices may be suggested.
