Short summary
What are the effects of the Grain for Green project on the water balance in the Loess Plateau of China? Our modeling study indicated that surface runoff and water yield exhibited a decreasing trend with the expansion of woodland on the sloping land because of overland flow retention and intensification of ET, while these effects were at the expense of soil water reduction in the region. Thus, land use planning should consider all water balance components to promote watershed sustainability.
