Short summary
With the aid of a hydrological model and outputs from global climate models (GCMs), we elucidate the spatiotemporal variability of rainfall–runoff in the Congo River basin in the past and in the future under multiple greenhouse gas emission scenarios. We show that the hydrologic model that is forced with outputs from 25 GCMs and two emission scenarios reveal a range of projected changes in precipitation and runoff, and that runoff dynamics are highly sensitive to GCM forcing.
