- Long-term data sets of headwater river discharges and precipitation record in the northern part of the Kinneret drainage basin were compiled and analyzed. Previous conclusions related the headwaters discharge decline to anthropogenic enhancement of consumption. Wider and deeper search of the regional balances confirmed enhancement of gravitating water loss in the Hula Valley. The Hula Valley soil properties of Field Capacity, Bulk Density and Wilting Point confirm the potential loss of gravitating water during periods of dryness due to Climate change through preferential pathways.
