Abstract: Hydrological cycle is inherent of climate processes with lot of interactions thereby making the system to be complex. The modeling of hydrological cycle to simulate the water resource has been well researched for more than a decade. In the recent past the studies are initiated to capture the influence of climate parameters on the hydrological cycle. One of the major inferences from the above is that, influence of climate parameters in arid and semiarid climatic region is not very significant. To understand the generalized behavior stated by the research community on arid regions, in this research paper we explored the inflow database of stanely reservoir, Tamilnadu. A modeling framework has been developed that predicts the reservoir inflow considering the future climatic scenarios. From the developed model, we inferred that the generalized stated on arid region valid only in case of regional / macro modeling, and it does not valid for specific case as micro climate variables influences the hydrological cycle.
