Global impacts of conversions from natural to agricultural ecosystems on water resources: Quantity versus quality

Bridget R. Scanlon, Ian Jolly, Marios Sophocleous, Lu Zhang
2007 Water Resources Research  
Increases in rain-fed cropland (460%) and pastureland (560%) during the past 300 years from forest and grasslands decreased evapotranspiration and increased recharge (two orders of magnitude) and streamflow  ...  Long time lags (decades to centuries) between land use changes and system response (e.g., recharge, streamflow, and water quality), particularly in semiarid regions, mean that the full impact of land use  ...  For example, doubling of irrigated agriculture in the Yellow River Basin accounts for $91% of surface water abstractions and resulted in drying up of the lower reach of the Yellow River since 1972, termed  ...
