Climate scenarios projected increases in the duration, hydrological deficit and frequency of severe droughts of varying duration (1 to 6 months)

The land cover change analysis indicated that more than 90% of the basin area maintained its land cover, and that the main changes were attributed to recent large wildfires

Projections suggest that the annual input of freshwater from the Puelo River to the Reloncaví Fjord would decrease by − 10%; these decreases would mainly take place in summer (− 20%) and autumn (− 15%)
