Short summary
A set of the new Euro-CORDEX projections is used to examine the impact of high-end scenarios on water availability and stress at a pan-European scale. Drought climatology is investigated for five major European basins along with the impact of +2 °C versus +4 °C warming. The effect of bias correction is also examined. The selection of the observational data set used for bias adjustment has an impact on the projected signal that could be of the same order of magnitude as the selection of the RCM.
