In this study, the RHESSys model is used to study the post response (including potential climate change scenarios) of hydrologic and vegetation dynamics to an Active Management strategy (i.e. shrub clearing as a result of natural revegetation) in an abandoned cropland catchment  of the Central Spanish Pyrenees.
