Abstract: We developed a new method for assessing water resources dynamics of highly managed river basins using a detailed study in the UK. Modelling water resources of highly managed river basin has long been an issue as man-made controls and regulations alter the way how river catchment responds to the external forcing factors hence rendering many existing models useless. In this paper, we show the way of how those catchments can be fairly restored to their 'natural' states by effectively separating the managing practices from the underlying hydrological processes. With the assistance of this method, we further employ a quantile-based analysis to provide detailed distributions of water resources in both time and space. The method will be of great use for both researchers and practitioners in terms of managing and planning water resources under a changing climate.
