In this paper we produce projections of seasonal precipitation for four Mediterranean areas: Apulia region (Italy), Ebro river basin (Spain), Po valley (Italy) and Antalya province (Turkey).
Drought events in the Mediterranean are likely to increase in frequency, duration and intensity due to climate change, thereby affecting crop production. Information about drought is valuable for river basin authorities and the farmers affected by their decisions.
Natural hazards, due to climate change, are particularly damaging in urban areas because of interdependencies of their networks. So, urban resilience has to face up to climate risks. The most impacting phenomenon is the urban heat island (UHI) effect.
This paper examines the spatial and temporal rainfall characteristics of the region of Valencia, Western Mediterranean Basin (east Spain), during the World Meteorological Organization (WMO) normal period 1961–1990.
Desde diciembre de 1985 el Programa ERHIN realiza tres mediciones anuales (enero, marzo y finales de abril) del espesor de nieve en 114 balizas localizadas en el Pirineo central español.
In the Mediterranean climate, plants have evolved under conditions of low soil-water and nutrient availabilities and have acquired a series of adaptive traits that, in turn exert strong feedback on soil fertility, structure, and protection.
A pesar de la supuesta suavidad climática, los fenómenos meteorológicos adversos tienen graves consecuencias en Canarias. Aún así los estudios sobre estas cuestiones son sólo parciales.
To study the relationship between mortality and temperature in Cantabria, a Spanish region that includes both rural and urban areas.
The tourism-recreation sector is increasingly recognized as a climate-sensitive economic sector, with both supply- (tourism operators, destination communities) and demand-side stakeholders (tourists) directly affected by climate and its indirect influence on a wide range of environmental resources t
El sur de Gran Canaria ha sido intensamente transformado por las instalaciones turísticas que, desde 1962, se han realizado. Entre las consecuencias ambientales de este proceso destacan las inundaciones.
