Summary:Taking the Xilin River basin, a dry cold basin located in the Inner Mongolia of China, as a case, a snowmelt-based water balance model(SWBM) was applied to simulate runoff and study climate change impact. The results indicate that SWBM performs well for monthly runoff simulation, Nash-Sutcliffe efficiency(NSEs) in calibration and verification periods are both over 60% while relative error(Res) in both periods are less than 8%. Under global warming, water resources in the Xilinhe River Basin will present decreasing trend with significant decreasing possibly occurred after 2030.
