Cover Story (view full-size image): We synthesize climate, hydrological, and human land- and water-use data with the aim to decipher key changes and their drivers for freshwater availability and flux balance in five nested catchments across Greece. Changes are assessed from an early (1930–1949) to a recent (1990–2009) period, with different climate (particularly less precipitation) and human influence (particularly more irrigated agriculture) conditions in the latter. We find that the precipitation change has driven decrease while the irrigation development has driven increase in evapotranspiration, leading to a net total increase of 26 ± 7 mm/year on average over Greece. For average runoff over Greece, draining to different parts of the Mediterranean Sea, both drivers have contributed more or less equally to a considerable total decrease of −75 ± 10 mm/year.
