Abstract The impact of climatic change on variables of concern to eco-hydrology was examined. Long time series of records of temperature, precipitation and river flow for Poznan were analyzed and forecasts of tendencies were made. Spatial distribution of runoff and of the ratio of evapotranspiration to precipitation was obtained for the country. It was found likely that the dynamics of the hydrological cycle will accelerate. Annual precipitation, runoff and evapotranspiration will increase. The joint effect, including estimated growth in water demand, is likely to be a decrease in the amount of soil moisture.
