Dataset for: Future water temperature of rivers in Switzerland under climate change investigated with physics-based models

This work presents the first extensive study of climate change impacts on rivers temperature in Switzerland. Results show that even for low emissions scenarios, water temperature increase will lead to adverse effect for both ecosystems and socioeconomic sectors (such as nuclear plant cooling) throughout the 21st century. For high emissions scenarios, the effect will be worsen. This study also shows that water warming in summer will be more important in Alpine regions than in lowlands.
