Clark Andreichuk Sauchyn-2017-Incorporating climate change scenarios and water-balance approach to cumulative assessment models of solution potash mining in the Canadian Prairies

Changing hydroclimatic conditions on the Canadian Prairies include significant
shifts in the intensity, duration, and frequency of precipitation events, as well as temperature
and seasonal shifts that affect water availability and quality. Concurrently, high-water-useintensity industrial development, such as solution potash mining, is also lessening availability
of timely water resources in agricultural regions and southern Prairie watersheds.
