Short summary
Conflicting results on the effect of the land use/land cover (LULC) and climate changes on runoff have been reported for relatively large basins. After quantifying the impacts of LULC and climate changes on surface runoff using the Soil and Water Assessment Tool, we concluded that large-scale LULC has had an important effect on the water cycle and that the conflicting findings on the effect of the LULC and climate changes on runoff are likely caused by uncertainty in hydrological simulations.
