The climatic processes such as change in precipitation, temperature and atmospheric CO2 concentration can intensify the effects on water resources. The long-term climate change affects assessment on water resources is essential to develop water quality improvement programs. This study was conducted in Upper Pearl River Watershed (UPRW) in east-central Mississippi to assess the effects of long-term potential future climate change on average mean monthly stream flow from the five spatially distributed USGS gage stations using Soil and Water Assessment Tool (SWAT).
