Validation Summary: 
General Comments:Climate change scenarios were represented by arbitrary changes in temperature, precipitation, and CO2 (e.g., +4°C; ±10% precipitation; 2xCO2). Increased temperature resulted in a decrease in water yeild and vice versa for precipitation. Increased CO2 in combination with increased precipitation resulted in the largest water yield increase. Increased CO2 concentrations were found to dampen water yield loss effects occurring from increased temperature or decreased precipitation.
