Short summary
We used the PERSiST model to explore the role of riparian evapotranspiration (ET) in regulating streamflow in Mediterranean regions. Riparian ET was essential for understanding streamflow dynamics, especially in summer. Moreover, climate change simulations showed that the contribution of riparian ET to annual water budgets will increase in the future. We must include riparian zones in hydrological models in order to establish proper management strategies in water-limited regions.
